Few Races, Issues, Highlight Ohio Primary

Voting is underway in the 2011 primary. School officials in Canal Winchester, Gahanna, Hilliard and Olentangy are asking voters for new money. Franklin County Board of Elections spokesman Ben Piscatelli says turnout will likely spike in some precincts. "Its not unusual when you have a school levy for 50 percent of those voters to turn out in those precincts," Piscatelli says. Polls are open until 7:30 tonight. The Ohio secretary of state's office says voters in 64 counties will decide 381 issues. Republicans in Hilliard and Reynoldsburg will pare the field of candidates for city council races.
