Early CAC vote set Tuesday

One of three open commission seats is opposed

Early in-person voting is set for Tuesday, April 29, for the Clintonville Area Commission posts up for election this year.

Former CAC member Michael Folmar, chairman of the election committee, announced the date last week.

Residents of Districts 1, 2 and 9 will choose their representatives on the advisory panel, though only District 1 residents will see an opposed race on the ballot.

Early voting will take place from 5:30 to 8 p.m. April 29 in the meeting room of the Whetstone branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library, 3909 N. High St.

The regular election is set from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 3 in the same location.

The results will be announced that day after committee members tally the ballots cast.

Voters must be 18 or older and will be asked to present a photo ID and proof of residence in their district. Proof of residence may be in the form of a utility bill or a bank check with an address. Residents without appropriate proof of residence may sign a statement attesting to their residence in their district.

District 1 is bounded on the south by the Glen Echo Ravine; on the east by the railroad tracks just east of Indianola; on the north by the center line of Weber Road; and on the west by the center line of High Street.

District 2 is bounded on the south by the Glen Echo Ravine; on the east by the center line of High Street; on the north by the center line of Orchard Lane; and on the west by the Olentangy River.

District 9 is bounded on the south by the Columbus city limits and the eastward projection of the Columbus city limits (west of High Street) and by the center line of Georgetown Drive and its westward projection and the south line of the State Schools for the Blind and Deaf (east of High Street); on the east by the railroad tracks just east of Indianola; on the north by the city limits of Worthington; and on the west by the Olentangy River and the Columbus city limits.

Only voters in District 1, where incumbent Rob Wood opted not to seek re-election, will have a choice on the ballot.

Nancy Kuhel of District 2 and District 9's D Searcy face no opposition.

Those seeking to take Wood's place on the panel are Brendan Michael Inscho of Kensington Place East, Peter Niswander of East Kelso Road and David Vottero of East Tulane Road.
