It's a special election day in Ohio, but most voters have nothing to vote on

Feb 3, 2015

Ohio is holding a special election today, but the vast majority of voters in southwest Ohio have no reason to go to the polls.

Polling places in Hamilton and Clermont counties won’t open today, because there were no ballot issues filed for today’s election.

In Butler County, there is only one issue on the ballot – an emergency tax levy renewal for the Madison Local School District amounting to 7.07 mills for 10 years.

Warren County, too, has one issue on the ballot – an 8.88 mill, five year renewal for the Franklin City Schools.

In both Warren and Butler counties, only polling places in those school districts will be open.

Voting hours today are from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
