Polls have closed in Clark and Champaign counties and throughout Ohio.
The Springfield News-Sun will have updates this evening and complete coverage in print on Wednesday.
Voter turnout was light throughout the day in Clark and Champaign counties, but local elections officials reported no significant problems at polling locations.
Some voters had questions about where to vote, but that is typical for any election, said Matthew Tlachac, director of the Clark County Board of Elections. He said elections workers were expecting low turnout.
“It seems like it’s a typical election day,” Tlachac said.
In Champaign County, by 3 p.m., only about 930 voters had showed up to vote in city races in Urbana, which was also low, said Meredith Bodey, deputy director of the Champaign County Board of Elections.
Overall, Champaign County had received about 860 absentee ballots, compared to more than 1,400 in a similar election four years ago.
Champaign county also experimented with using electronic pollbooks in a handful of precincts this year as part of a pilot program.
The devices are expected to provide more accuracy for poll workers, and Bodey said they seemed to be working well today.
“It speeds up the process a little faster,” she said.
