Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin residents will head to the polls on Tuesday to vote in the primary election.

Polls will open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.

Registered Republicans will be able to vote in the Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court judge primary, while all registered voters of the City of Tiffin will have the opportunity to vote in the non-partisan primary for Tiffin mayor.

According to recent changes to the city charter, primary elections for the City of Tiffin are now non-partisan. In contended races, all candidates from any political party will appear on all ballots. However, county-wide races will continue to follow the partisan primary process.

The Tiffin mayor race will be contested on either a Republican or non-partisan ballot, with no separate ballot for Democrats. The top two vote-getters from the Tiffin mayor race will advance to the Nov. 7 general election.

The winner of the Republican primary for Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court judge will face Jim Fruth, the uncontested Democratic candidate for municipal judge.

To stay updated on the unofficial results of the primary election, the Seneca County Board of Elections will be hosting a live broadcast of the vote count on their Facebook page, starting at approximately 8:15 p.m. on election day.
