The election provided for in section 5705.194 of the Revised Code shall be held at the regular places for voting in the district, and shall be conducted, canvassed, and certified in the same manner as regular elections in the district for the election of county officers, provided that in any such election in which only part of the electors of a precinct are qualified to vote, the board of elections may assign voters in such part to an adjoining precinct.  Such an assignment may be made to an adjoining precinct in another county with the consent and approval of the board of elections of such other county.  Notice of the election shall be published in one newspaper of general circulation in the district once a week for two consecutive weeks or as provided in section 7.16 of the Revised Code, prior to the election.  If the board of elections operates and maintains a web site, the board of elections shall post notice of the election on its web site for thirty days prior to the election.  Such notice shall state the annual proceeds of the proposed levy, the purpose for which such proceeds are to be used, the number of years during which the levy shall run, and the estimated average additional tax rate expressed in dollars and cents for each one hundred dollars of valuation as well as in mills for each one dollar of valuation, outside the limitation imposed by Section 2 of Article XII, Ohio Constitution, as certified by the county auditor.

Every insurer doing a fire, travel, or marine insurance business, other than domestic insurers and insurers excepted under s. 76.61, shall pay to the state, in respect to travel or marine insurance a tax of 0.5 percent and in respect to fire insurance a tax of 2.375 percent on the amount of its gross premiums, as calculated under s. 76.62. In case any insurer discontinues business in this state and reinsures the whole or a part of its risks without making payment of this tax, the insurer accepting such reinsurance shall pay the tax. If several insurers make such reinsurance the tax shall be apportioned among the insurers in proportion to the original premiums upon the business in this state so reinsured by each such insurer. Upon the payment of the tax provided in this section, and the fees required by s. 601.31, such insurer may be licensed to transact its business until May 1 in the ensuing year, unless before then its license is revoked or forfeited according to law.In the case of travel insurance, the premiums subject to tax under this section are the premiums for travel insurance, as defined in s. 632.977(1)(i), paid by an individual who is a resident of this state and who purchases travel insurance coverage under an individual or group policy or paid by a person who is a resident of or has a principal place of business in this state and who purchases blanket travel insurance, as defined in s. 632.977(1)(a).
