HUDSON — City voters will head to the polls on Tuesday.

In addition to voting in the presidential primary, Hudson voters will be casting ballots in contested primaries for the U.S. House’s 14th District, Summit County Sheriff, and Summit County Domestic Relations Judge.

In the 14th District of the U.S. House, current Rep. David Joyce is facing a challenge from Mark Pitrone for the Republican Party’s nomination. The winner of Tuesday’s primary will face Democrat Hillary O’Connor Mueri in the November election.

There are four Democrats — Kandy Fatheree, Pat Hunt, Sr., John R. Peake, Sr., and Dale A. Soltis — competing for their party’s nomination for Summit County Sheriff. One Republican — Shane R. Barker — has filed to run for sheriff. Current Summit County Sheriff Steve Barry, a Democrat, did not file for re-election.

Democrats Kani Hightower and Margaret Scott are vying for their party’s nomination to run for Summit County Domestic Relations Judge. The winner will face incumbent Republican Katarina Vujic Cook in November.
