"No Campaigning Beyond This Point," a sign from the 2008 election in Ohio. On Tuesday, November 4th, Ohio voters will elect a slew of statewide offices and decide on many local issues. The state offices up for grabs include governor, attorney general, secretary of state and seats on the state school board and the state Supreme Court.In the Miami Valley, three Republican U.S. Congressmen are facing challenges: John Boehner in the 8th, Mike Turner in the 10th and Steve Chabot in the 1st U.S. district.One state senate election is contested in the area—Republican Bill Beagle, of the 5th district, is defending his seat against Democratic Tipp City councilwoman Dee Gillis.Finally, there are nearly a dozen Ohio house races in the area (see the district map here and the list of candidates here) and we’re following the races for Montgomery County Commission and county auditor.The long list of local issues on Miami Valley ballots include a new tax levy for the Greene County Public Library, a Montgomery County human services levy, an income tax levy for Huber Heights, a parks levy in Beavercreek and an income tax increase in Piqua.

At 7:15 a.m. Wednesday, we have unofficial returns from all statewide and most local races we are covering on WYSO. 

Governor John Kasich won re-election over Democrat Ed Fitzgerald, bringing a whole ticket of Republican statewide offices with him. Mike DeWine will have another term as Attorney General, David Yost won a second term as state auditor, and John Husted won his bid for re-election as secretary of state.

The only race that was expected to be close—the competition for treasurer between Republican Josh Mandel and Cincinnati Democrat Connie Pillich—was not close. Mandel took the seat with 57 percent of the vote.

WYSO will continue updating results from the November 2014 election online throughout the day, but most county, school district and local town or village issues will not be posted individually. Look for local results in your county on these websites:
