Voting under way today ... in Ohio

January 31, 2012 - Rob Weaver
Florida residents began casting ballots at 7 a.m. today in that state’s primary election. It’s interesting to note that, later in the monring, voting in Ohio’s primary also began.

That’s correct; early voting began today for Ohio’s March 6 election. Registered voters could show up this morning at a county board of elections office to cast a ballot in the presidential primary. Also, absentee ballots requested by voters could hit the mail today.

While front-runners Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich continued to duel for Florida’s 50 delegates, expected also-rans Rick Santorum and Ron Paul already were headed to Colorado and Nevada, which conduct caucuses during the next seven days. Perhaps, along the way, they should have stopped in the Buckeye State and started campaigning for Ohio’s 66 delegates, more than Colorado and Nevada combined.

Closer to home, our reporting in advance of the March 6 primary will begin soon. Seneca County Opportunity Center and Tiffin City Schools have levies on the ballot, and voters in Republic are to decide the fate of a municipal income tax as well. Also, there are a pair of county commissioner contests and a race for state representative for the 87th district on the Republican ballot.

Early in-person voting is to continue until 6 p.m. March 2, the Friday before the election.

C’mon and join the excitement.
