CINCINNATI — Tuesday is Ohio's primary election and Cincinnati is seeing some of the most competitive races.
Polls opened at 6 a.m. and there's been a steady stream of voters, but not nearly as many as the turnout Ohio saw last November.
An important race and issue are on the ballot. The first is Mayor John Cranley, who is rumored to be considering a run for governor, has reached his term limit so voters will decide who will replace him. Six candidates are on the ballot.
Voters said after four city council members have been indicted in the past year and a half, they want to see more stability at City Hall.
“The last few years have proved that some of the candidates have taken advantage of city pockets and we’re kinda sick of it," said one voter.
Also on the ballot is a controversial measure that would set aside $50 million every year for affordable housing. Advocates said it's what the city needs to address the thousands of affordable units lacking in Cincinnati. Opponents said it's too expensive, and if it passed, it would destroy the city budget.
Voting continues until 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night.
