Ohio Election Results –  Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Each election, Ohio’s voters decide the fate of candidates and issues on their ballot.  However, voters around the state will use different ballots because of differing district and local candidates and issues.

In 2011, Ohioans will elect mayors, members of city and village councils, members of village boards of trustees of public affairs, other city and village officers, judges and clerks of municipal courts, members of boards of education and township trustees and fiscal officers. Voters will also weigh in on three statewide issues.

The Secretary of State’s office maintains information regarding statewide issues.  However, this office does not maintain records or results of local candidates.  For a complete list of what candidates and issues will appear on your local ballot, please consult your local county board of elections.

  • Democrats and unions are working feverishly to repeal a state law that took unionizing rights away from public employees, including teachers and firefighters. Polls indicate that the Democrats and unions will win this battle. And while polls are often of dubious value in referenda, Republicans are pretty much conceding defeat.
  • Chris Jankowski, head of the Republican State Leadership Committee, told The Hill that GOP Gov. John Kasich’s fading popularity has damaged Republicans’ cause and that the party has a “messaging problem” on the issue.
  • Democrats, meanwhile, are hoping that a strong turnout will provide momentum for Obama’s 2012 campaign in Ohio. Unions have put great emphasis on the vote, spending millions of dollars, and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is in the state.
  • Democrats also hope that, if they succeed, they will make headway in other states where strong Republican governors took over in 2011, such as Wisconsin and Florida.
