MORE INFO ABOUT THE STATEWIDE ISSUES:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio voters will decide ballot issues on Tuesday that would place limits on drug prices and expand victims’ rights in criminal proceedings, along with several mayoral races.
    
Issue 1 is meant to expand crime victims’ rights. Opponents say such laws elsewhere have had unintended, negative consequences.
    
Issue 2 aims to cut prescription drug prices for the poor, injured workers and prisoners. Opponents say it could reduce access and raise some prices.
    
While low voter turnout is typical in off-year elections, early voting figures in some counties indicate voter interest is higher than normal, particularly in city elections with incumbents facing spirited challenges.
    
Democrats have continued to do well in large urban areas, while Republicans have dominated recent statewide votes led by Donald Trump’s presidential win last year.
