High Turnout

From WCPO (ABC-Cincinnati):

More Ohioans voted for governor in Tuesday's elections than in any other gubernatorial election in the past, but turnout was still lower than expected.

About 3.87 million people cast ballots Tuesday almost a quarter million more than when Republican George Voinovich was elected governor in 1990.

And I suppose that explains why turnout was so poor in my neighborhood: KB was unable to stop Republicans from staying home. :(

Turnout was quite unbelievable Steven. As you said, it set new records in Ohio. And I would like to thank all of the Ohio voters who decided to Turn Around Ohio.

make no mistake ohio may look like a blue state but it's blue independents and red independents who changed the power balance. yellow dog democrats and right red republicans are fringe and really don't reflect the independent minds that make ohio the swing state it is.
