At the top of the ticket is the U.S. presidential race between former Vice President Joe Biden, Democratic and incumbent President Donald Trump, the Republican candidate. Trump’s running mate remains Vice President Mike Pence.
Joe Biden’s running mate is Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who would be the first African American, and only the third woman, nominated as vice president. Harris herself ran for president last year, before dropping out and endorsing Biden.
For independent candidates for president and vice president:
Jo Jorgensen –Libertarian Party, with running mate Spike Cohen.
Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker will also appear on the ballot as independent candidates.
Rapper Kanye West did not qualify as a presidential candidate in Ohio, due to problems with his nominating petition, although he will appear on the ballot in several other states.
All 16 of Ohio’s congressional seats are also up for grabs in 2020.
Currently the delegation is occupied by 12 Republicans and four Democrats, and although Ohio’s legislature approved a plan to redraw the Congressional map, that won’t impact any election until 2022.

French faces a Democratic challenger in Jennifer Bruner, a former Ohio Secretary of State and current judge on Ohio’s 10th District Court of Appeals.
Kennedy will face Democrat John P. O’Donnell, currently a judge on the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas.
