A most important to-do task: Go vote.

By now, informed voters should be familiar with the names appearing on local ballots.

We hope you’ve been paying attention and have your decisions, either on candidates or issues, already set.

Tuesday is Election Day. Polls in Ohio are open from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Results of voting will be posted at www.mariettatimes.com. And dominate news appearing in Wednesday’s paper.

If you need a refresher course on who’s running in major races we’ve featured through the campaign, we urge you to refer back to use the election guide that appeared in our Oct. 21 edition or the guide posted on the web at www.mariettatimes.com. You’ll see the candidates’ answers, in their own words, to key questions.

A word of warning to voters: All voters must bring acceptable identification to the polls in order to verify their identity, according to the Board of Elections website. Acceptable identification includes a current and valid photo identification; military identification; or a copy of a current (within the last 12 months) utility bill (including cell phone bill), bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document, other than a voter registration acknowledgement notification mailed by the board of elections, that shows the voter’s name and current address.

And if you don’t know where your voting precinct is located contact the elections board for the answer.

Most importantly, we urge you to exercise your right to vote. If you haven’t taken advantage of early voting times definitely get out Tuesday and vote.
