Jul. 20—The Lucas County Board of Elections on Tuesday rejected ballot applications from four of the 24 candidates for Toledo City Council seats to run in the Sept. 14 primary.

Those failing to make certification included Jody Carroll, one of the slate of candidates backed by mayoral candidate Carty Finkbeiner. Ms. Carroll was rejected for being registered to vote under a different name than her candidate filing. She failed to correctly complete her change of name form, the board of elections said.

Not certified because of insufficient signatures were Brenda Snyder, Sam Harden, and Adam Martinez.

Toledo council candidates who were certified are Katie Moline, Cerssandra McPherson, Nick Komives, Tiffany Preston Whitman, Mac Driscoll, George Sarantou, Harvey Savage Jr., Alfonso Narvaez, Jim Hill, Tim Ryan, Michael Knight, Ron Murphy, Tom Names, Glen Cook, Tony Dia, Steve Fought, Daniel Ortiz, Michele Grim, Larry Sykes, and James Kushlan.

The elections board certified all three mayoral candidates — incumbent Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz, former Mayor Finkbeiner, and former Toledo council member Jan Scotland.

Friday was the deadline for candidates looking to fill the six at-large council seats up for election this year, and 24 candidates turned in their petitions.

Early voting for the Sept. 14 primary election begins Aug. 17, with the last day to register to vote on Aug. 16.

The top 12 vote-getters in September will advance to the general election in November, where the top six will secure an at-large council seat. Toledo's six district council seats will be up for election in two years.
