Election polls now closed


Election polls are now closed.

“Voters in 74 counties will decide several local races and 351 local issues, including 138 school issues and a number of local tax levies, bond issues and charter amendments,” said a release from Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted. A list of local issues appearing on the ballot is online at www.myohiovote.com.

Voters going to polls should take a proper form of identification.

Elections updates are available via twitter by following @OhioSOSHusted, the release said.

The State of Ohio also has a program in which voters may dedicate their votes to past and present military service members. The Vote in Honor a Veteran initiative allows voters to post a testimonial about a loved one on the Secretary of State’s website and social media sites.

More information is available at www.ohiomilitaryvotes.com.
