Springing forward: Check batteries, voter info

COLUMBUS, Ohio – This is the weekend when most Americans set their clocks ahead one hour to begin Daylight Saving Time.

Fire officials say this is also a good weekend to test the batteries in household smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

And, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted says, this year, it is a good opportunity for Ohio voters to check their registrations and change their addresses, if necessary, at the office’s one-stop voter information website.

Ohio voters planning to go to the polls to vote in the May 7 primary election should have their voting information updated no later than voter registration deadline on April 8, Husted said.
