Voters Guide: Few races not listed, as candidates didn’t answer questions posed

The Dayton Daily News Voters Guide aims to help local residents make informed choices in the November 2022 election.

There are 30 “contested” races in the Dayton area this election cycle, ranging from U.S. Senate and Congress, to statewide offices like governor and Supreme Court justice, to county-level races for commissioner or judge.

A contested race is one where there are multiple candidates listed on the ballot. (FYI, there are many county-level races, and a few statehouse races, where only one candidate is on the ballot, and therefore, they’ll be nearly automatically elected).

Of the 30 contested races, our Voters Guide now has links showing candidate answers for 28 of them, up from 24 originally. In most cases, all candidates answered, but in some cases, only one of two candidates responded.

Here are the two races where neither candidate has responded to our questions:

** State Senate District 7 (all Warren County, part of Hamilton) — Republican incumbent Steve Wilson vs. Democrat David Dallas

** U.S. Congress 4th District (Champaign County and points north) — Republican incumbent Jim Jordan vs. Democrat Tamie Wilson
