Ohio Elections Chief: No Major Voting Problems So Far< < Back to
The secretary of state’s office says no major problems were reported early Tuesday as Ohioans cast ballots in a primary election that includes picking Republican and Democratic nominees for governor.
Voting was steady Tuesday with no long lines reported by late morning.
Elections chief Jon Husted says absentee voting is up from the same time four years ago.
Four main Democrats and two Republicans are running for governor. Voters also are choosing a Republican U.S. Senate candidate and deciding some unusually competitive congressional and state legislative seats.
It made for one of Ohio’s most expensive, nasty and unpredictable primary seasons in recent memory.
Also on the ballot is a proposal to change how congressional districts are drawn. That is aimed at reducing gerrymandering, or the partisan manipulation of maps.
