Officials say Ohio voter turnout was 68 percent



Published: Wed, November 7, 2012 @ 10:50 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio officials say the voter turnout for Tuesday’s election was just more than 68 percent.

The Ohio Secretary of State’s Office reported that about 5.4 million Ohioans cast ballots out of the nearly 8 million registered voters. The percentage was just short of the 70 percent that turned out for the last two presidential elections, in 2008 and 2004.

The office reported today that there were more than 119,000 absentee ballots and more than 205,000 provisional ballots outstanding.

Among the counties with the highest turnout were Highland in southwest Ohio, Delaware in the Columbus area and Putnam in northwest Ohio.

That makes me really proud of my fellow Ohioans. It shows that us Buckeyes take our civic duties seriously and even more so that our state pushed Obama over the top to 270!

Go Ohio and Go Obama!
