Sandusky County Court ballots ordered

After meeting Friday in an early-morning emergency session to discuss a ruling by the Ohio Supreme Court, the Sandusky County Board of Elections agreed to authorize a new single ballot with only two county court races.

The ballots will be mailed to voters who have already voted an absentee ballot.

Only voters in the two county court districts will receive a second ballot.

Voters in the cities of Fremont and Bellevue and the townships of Ballville, Sandusky, and York townships are not in the districts.

Voters are being asked to return the ballots as soon as possible.

The Supreme Court decision strikes down House Bill 509, which was enacted this summer and created a new Sandusky County Municipal Court with one full-time judge to replace the county court that had two part-time judges - one based in Woodville and one in Clyde.

The ruling directs the board of elections to accept the petitions filed by three candidates intent on running for the part-time posts.

John Kolesar, the current judge in the Clyde court, is unopposed. Mary Beth Fiser and Beth Tischler had taken out petitions to run for the Woodville court. The incumbent, Herb Adams, is prohibited from running due to age limits.
