Voters are going to the polls today across Ohio to vote in the Primary Election.

Statewide there are number of candidate and school issues on the ballot. Here in Cuyahoga County one of the biggest issues will be the vote on whether or not to extend the sin tax.

The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections says all 402 polling stations in the county opened on time and no significant issues have been reported.

Voters will have until 7:30 p.m., when the polls close, to cast their ballots.

The Cuyahoga County BOE anticipates a voter turnout of around 23% or about 200,000 ballots.

"We expect voting to be light but steady throughout the day and to get busier when people vote on their way home from work. The good weather should also help promote turnout," said Pat McDonald the Director of the Board of Elections.

To date the Cuyahoga BOE says nearly 80,800 people have requested Vote by Mail ballots. Close to 72,000 of those ballots have been returned so far.

The Board of Elections wants to remind anyone who still has a Vote by Mail ballot to be sure to drop it off at the Board of Elections before 7:30 p.m. tonight. The Board of Elections is located at 2925 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland and is the only location that will accept Vote by Mail ballots today.
