Can I still register to vote for May's election?

If I'm not registered to vote for the election next month, can I still sign up? Duane in Milan Township

You still can — but you better hurry up.

The deadline to register for the May 7 election is Monday. To vote, you must be:

• A U.S. citizen.

• At least 18 years old on or before the day of the election.

• An Ohio resident for at least 30 days prior to the election date.

To vote, you cannot be:

• Incarcerated in jail or prison on a felony conviction.

• Declared incompetent for voting purposes by a probate court.

• Permanently disenfranchised for violations of the election law.

When going to vote, bring a valid photo identification card — a driver's license works — military identification or a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check or government document showing your name and current address.
