In this year’s November 2nd general election, Ohio voters will see 53 county-wide health and human services levies in 47 different counties on their ballots. These HHS levies would fund a number of programs, including services for seniors, Ohioans with developmental disabilities, mental health and addiction recovery services, and children’s services, in addition to operations and programs of county health districts and overall health and human services.

 Ohio voters will see 53 county-wide health and human services levies in 47 different counties on their ballots.

Seven of the 53 county levies request funding for multi-county Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) Boards. Twelve levies seek funding for county health districts, and 16 levies would fund services and facilities for seniors.  

Most of the levies on ballots this fall seek a continuation of existing funding, with 32 proposed renewal levies, and six proposed renewals with an increase. Brown, Clinton, Guernsey, Lorain, Medina, Preble and Vinton Counties all have two health and human service related levies on their ballots this fall, and Morrow County has three.  

Proposed property tax levies across the state use mills, or millage rates, to represent the amount each homeowner would pay for the levy. The millage rate for a levy is the amount of tax per $1,000 of a property’s assessed value. For example, a 1 mill levy would result in a homeowner paying $1.00 for every $1,000 of their property’s assessed value.

 Be sure to visit your county Board of Election website using the directory on the Secretary of State’s website to find your full sample ballot.

There are many more local city, township and school district levies on ballots across the state. Be sure to visit your county Board of Election website using the directory on the Secretary of State’s website to find your full sample ballot.
