COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio voters can prepare for two primaries in 2012 now that the governor has signed a bill to hold most national contests in June, with local primaries still taking place in March.

Gov. John Kasich signed the bill Friday night, in order that it go into effect before the Jan. 21 deadline for local boards of election to ship ballots to members of the military overseas.

The Ohio House of Representatives earlier Friday approved a Senate move to hold state, local and U.S. Senate primaries in March, while presidential and U.S. House primaries would take place in June.

The measure is intended to give lawmakers more time to come up with new congressional districts after the GOP-drawn map passed in September was put on hold while a Democratic-backed coalition tried to put it before voters for possible repeal in 2012..
