The Miami County Board of Elections Sept. 16 approved the language for 24 issues that will appear on ballots across the county Nov. 3.


Eric Morgan, elections deputy director, said the only ballot language that might change would be on state Issue III, the proposal for commercial production and sale of marijuana for recreational and medical purposes. Board member Jose Lopez said preparing the ballots should move forward with the language approved by the Secretary of State. Changes would be made as legal challenges on wording are decided, he said. The language change statewide was approved later in the week.


The ballot includes two countywide issues: the proposed renewal of the county bridge levy and the renewal of a levy for the Miami County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
