Cook Political Report: Solid R
Ohio is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Only affiliated voters can vote for candidates in the primary election; however, voters do not choose their affiliation until election day, when they request a party's ballot.
Heading into the election the incumbent is Bob Gibbs (R), who was first elected in 2010. Prior to redistricting due to the 2010 census, he served as the representative of Ohio's now defunct 18th congressional district.
Ohio's 7th Congressional District is located in the north-central portion of the state and includes Knox, Coshocton, Tuscarawas, Holmes, Richland, Ashland, Huron, Medina, Lorain and Cuyahoga counties.
Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates.
