Ohioans will go to the polls tomorrow to vote on a variety of candidates and issues, including one state issue that would allow the state to borrow more than one point eight billion dollars over the next decade for community improvement projects. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles takes a look at the other issues on the statewide ballot.

There are 614 local issues on the ballot, including 149 school issues. In Cuyahoga County, voters will be deciding whether to renew a sin tax that funds local stadiums in Cleveland.  A tax increase for the Columbus Zoo will be decided by Franklin County voters.

There are also primaries for candidates running for statewide offices as well as congress, the state legislature, the Ohio Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals. The polls close at 7:30. Voters who have not yet returned absentee ballots can drop off the completed ballots at their county board of elections before the polls close.
