The Logan County Board of Elections approved nine local issues during Thursday’s meeting to appear on the Nov. 6 ballot.
Villages with issues on the Nov. 6 ballot include:

Voters in the West Liberty-Salem School District are being asked to approve a 27-year, 7.05-mill bond for renovating, improving and constructing additions to existing facilities. An additional 0.5-mill continuing levy would provide for acquisition, construction enlargement, renovation, and financing of permanent improvements.
Indian Lake School District seeks an additional 7.35 mills for 10 years to provide emergency requirements.
Ridgemont Local Public Library is asking for renewal of a 0.5-mill, five-year levy for current expenses.
In other board matters, a petition to place a referendum on the ballot to repeal a 1-percent income tax in West Mansfield was denied for incorrect or incomplete language. Steve Fansler, election board member and solicitor for the village, abstained from voting.
The board also reviewed a number of campaign finance reports, accepting all but that of Bellefontaine Mayor Adam Brannon, who missed the deadline for submission.
The board learned that all Americans with Disabilities Act checks are complete and polling locations are in compliance.
The next meeting is at 8:30 a.m. Thursday to certify candidates for auditor and family court judge and one local option.
