The Secretary of State’s office will process and catalog the petitions prior to sending them to the county boards of elections, which are tasked with verifying signatures. County boards have been instructed to complete their review of statewide candidate petitions by Tuesday, July 24.

Last week Secretary Husted announced that a committee seeking minor party status for the Libertarian Party of Ohio met the necessary requirements and can now seek office in the upcoming general election. Being a newly established minor party, candidates for statewide office must have collected at least 50 valid signatures, and candidates for all other offices must have collected at least five valid signatures.
