Seven local issues decided by one vote

Seven local issues across the state were decided by just one vote, which offers evidence that every vote matters, according to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted.

A review of the November 2014 general election found that seven local issues were decided by one vote or were tied.

“Whether it is a statewide or local issue, every ballot question has an impact on our lives and it is important that every voice is heard,” Husted said in a written release. “When voters stay home they allow others to make these decisions for them.”

In the 2013 general, 2014 primary and 2014 general elections a total of 70 local issues have been decided by one vote or tied, Husted said.
