What was on the ballot?

The May 2 election was purely a local election — there were no statewide or national races that everyone voted on. That means some communities had multiple important votes to cast Tuesday, while others had no election at all (Kettering, Springboro, Oakwood and Tipp City are among the areas with no contested election).

Miami County Elections Director Laura Bruns said her office had plenty of calls from voters who showed up at the polls only to find out they were closed, because their area had nothing to vote on.

The Clark County ballot featured only a few tax levies (New Carlisle and Pleasant Twp.) and local liquor option votes.

In Butler County, the focus was on two large school tax levies (Edgewood and Ross), plus utility aggregation in Middletown and a few liquor option votes.

The core Dayton area had a wide range of items on the ballot, including candidate races for Troy mayor, Miamisburg Municipal Court judge, plus the first round of the Dayton City Commission race, which will be fully decided in November.

And there are a bevy of tax levies around the Miami Valley. Nine of them are school levies, including requests for significant tax increases in Northmont, Vandalia-Butler, Huber Heights and Mad River. Several cities and townships, including Beavercreek, Trotwood and Washington Twp., are seeking funds for police, fire/EMS, roads and parks.
