Mayor John Cranley was re-elected to lead the city for another four years.

John Cranley won another term as Cincinnati 's mayor, defeating Council Member Yvette Simpson by a wide margin. All six Cincinnati City Council incumbents were re-elected Tuesday. They will be joined by two new Democrats and one new Republican on council. 

And Ohio voters rejected Issue 2, the Ohio Drug Price Relief Act, and voted for Issue 1, an expansion of crime victims' rights known as Marsy's Law.
