(Plain Press, November 2013) The November 5th General Election Ballot includes races for Cleveland Municipal Court, the Cleveland Mayor’s race and Cleveland City Council races.
Voters will also be asked to weigh in on levies for Health and Human Services, the Cleveland Public Library, the Cleveland Metroparks and the Port Authority. There will also be five Cuyahoga County Charter Amendments on the ballot.
To view a copy of your ballot prior to going to the polls, go online to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections website at: boe.cuyahogacounty.us. You can click on November 5th General Election and follow the prompts. If you are unfamiliar with the new ward boundaries (Cleveland reduced the number of wards to seventeen), and need to know your precinct or voting location, the site also has Ward Maps you can use to find this information.
In the Primary Election the Plain Press surveyed candidates in Ward 3 and Ward 14. The winning candidates in both wards answered surveys and those responses are still available under the category “Cleveland Politics” on the Plain Press website at www.plainpress.org. While there is a write in candidate in Ward 3, the candidate, Frank Giglio, did not respond to a request to complete a survey.
The Plain Press has placed completed surveys from candidates in the new Ward 11 and Ward 12 on our website, the completed surveys are available under the category “Cleveland Politics.” In Ward 11, candidate Michael Masterson submitted a completed survey. Ward 11 Candidate Dona Brady did not respond to a request to complete a survey. In Ward 12, both candidates, Roz McAllister and Anthony Brancatelli, completed a survey.
In addition to the Plain Press survey, Bike Cleveland did a survey of City Council Candidates, titled I Bike, I Vote. To view the survey results visit www.bikecleveland.org.
