Ohio Voters Head For The Polls

Listen to the Story

Polls are open around Ohio for voters to make their selections in local races and a special congressional primary in northwest Ohio.

Two Republicans, state Representative Bob Latta and state Senator Steve Buehrer, are facing off for the seat held many years by Republican Congressman Paul Gillmor. Gillmor died September 5th in an apparent fall down the stairs at his Washington area home. The winner of the primary will take on likely Democratic nominee, Robin Weirauch. Voters statewide will see an issue on their ballots seeking to block new restrictions on strip clubs. But any votes cast won’t count, because officials say a campaign on behalf of strip clubs did not submit enough valid signatures for the referendum.
