Local voters will have few decisions to make at the polls May 6.
One statewide issue and one countywide issue will be on the primary ballot, along with a Brown Township fire levy and a few party-specific candidate races.
The statewide Issue 1 would allow Ohio to generate $1.875 billion over a 10-year period in bonds to replace roads, bridges and other public infrastructure, according to The Columbus Dispatch.
It is a continuation of a program created through a voter-approved constitutional amendment in 1987, according to The Dispatch.
The countywide Issue 6 is a 1.25-mill permanent levy to raise money for improvements to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.
The proposed levy would generate $32.7 million a year and cost $44 per year per $100,000 in assessed property value.
The Columbus Zoo currently collects $19 million annually from a 0.75-mill levy, which expires at the end of 2015.
Brown Township residents also will decide a 5.12-mill fire levy request.
If approved, the levy would become effective Jan. 1, 2015, and generate $455,016 annually.
It would cost homeowners an additional $179 a year per $100,000 of assessed property value, according to Brown Township Fiscal Officer Greg Ruwe.
Republican voters will decide two contested candidate races.
State Rep. Stephanie Kunze (R-Hilliard) is being challenged by Patrick Manley of Clintonville in the 24th Ohio House District.
U.S. Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Columbus) is being challenged by Charles S. Chope of Upper Arlington in the 15th U.S. Congressional District.
Democrat voters will decide between gubernatorial hopefuls Larry Ealy and Edward FitzGerald.
