Ohio State Rep. Rick Perales (R-73rd District) is up for re-election and fellow Republican Jocelyn Smith of Fairborn has filed petitions to run against him for the Republican nomination in the May primary.
Perales is finishing out his third term as an Ohio representative.
The 73rd District includes the communities Bellbrook, Beavercreek, Fairborn and Yellow Springs.
Whoever gets the most votes in May will be the Republican party nominee to face Democrat Kim McCarthy, of Xenia, in the November election for the state representative seat.
In the race for one seat on the county board of commissioners, incumbent Alan Anderson is being challenged by County Treasurer Dick Gould, of Xenia, for the Republican nomination.
Anderson is looking to be re-elected for a fourth term on commission.
If Gould wins the nomination and subsequently wins in November, he would resign his position as county treasurer at the end of the year and start as a commissioner in January 2019.
On the Democratic side, Susan Lopez, of Beavercreek, will face Steve Bujenovic, of Yellow Springs, in the May Primary.
The candidate from each party who emerges with the most votes in May will then go on to run for the commission seat in the November election.
The elections board meets at 4 p.m. Feb. 15, 551 Ledbetter Road, to certify the partisan candidates’ petitions.
Independent candidates have until May 7 to file petitions. Residents have until April 9 to register to vote. Early voting begins April 10.
