After beginning with some vocal stretches to warm up her voicebox, Ginger Williams hums and vocalizes to match a tone played by Maureen Brogan, a student clinician.

"Good! I got 195," Maureen reports. 

"Yes!" Ginger whispers, her excitement quiet but palpable even over video conference. Her 195 signifies "195 hertz," which falls nicely into the 180-240 range associated with a female pitch.

For Ginger, a transgender woman, this result is exactly what she is here to achieve.

A new poll by Baldwin Wallace University sheds some light on how Ohioans are feeling about a range of issues from immigration and refugee resettlement to gun control and abortion. 

The survey was based on a sample of 1,361 Ohioans who were over age 18, and the results were weighted to approximate a cross-section of Ohioans by race and gender. 

A new poll has gubernatorial hopefuls Republican Mike DeWine and Democrat Rich Cordray running neck-and-neck with just a month before the election. And analysts are saying they’re seeing numbers that go against the theory of a so-called “Blue Wave.”
