WOOD COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

For the first time in more than 20 years, the seat for Perrysburg Municipal Court Judge has been open.

After 23 years of serving as judge, Dwight Osterud is retiring.

On Tuesday, Wood County residents will choose between three Republican candidates in a primary election: Drew Griffith, Molly Mack, and Aram Ohanian.

Mack and Ohanian currently work for the Wood County Prosecutor's Office. Griffith is a private practice attorney.

The municipal court oversees jurisdiction in many Wood County cities – Northwood, Rossford, Walbridge and Perrysburg - and some townships.

Whoever wins the primary will run against non-partisan candidate Tom Mackin. There is currently no Democrat candidate running.

"Certainly it is a unique situation that no one here in the county has ever seen," said Terry Burton, director of the Wood County Board of Elections. "The Republican candidates have been very active out there, working to get their voters out, and certainly whoever manages to do that best is probably going to have the winning side tomorrow."

All polling locations will be open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.
