Voting in the May 6 Primary Election in Richland County probably won't take you long. The Board of Elections certified the candidates to the ballot Thursday.

 You'll have to consider races for statewide offices including Governor, but locally, there's only one contested race for county commissioner in the Republican primary.

Those candidates are Shelby Mayor Marilyn John, former Richland County Emergency Management Agency Director Keith Markley, and David Morgenstern.

And, only four money issues appear on the ballot, an unusually small number. They include an 8-mill renewal levy for Lexington Schools, a 2.5-million five-year additional levy for Franklin Township's current expenses, a 1.5-mill renewal levy for the Plymouth Township Fire Department, and a .5-mill renewal levy for the operation and maintenance of the Troy Township cemetery.

 Early and absentee voting for the May primary starts April 1, and runs through Saturday May 3.
