So far, looking like Yes on 1 and 2, no on 3 with 47.5% in.

Will it hold?

3 has already been called a failure, 1 is obviously going to be a success, so 2 is the only one still really up in the air now.


ETA Weirdly steady progression, with overall percentages basically not changing the more precincts report in.

With just over 25% of the vote now

Selection Votes % of Votes

1. Issue 2 is the worst possible law

 

I really hope it fails. I voted yes one 1 and 3, but those are not as important to me as issue 2 failing.

(and remember, all hamilton county ballots cast between 7pm and 9pm were provisional. That means they will not be counted for 10 days, so if the race is close, we will be waiting for a while, but I doubt any will be that close.

2. Issue 3 is not the best law overall regarding marijuhana because of the business monopolies.


"The marijuana question, which was a main issue before voters, garnered some "no" votes from Ohioans who didn't like that a small group of investors would have exclusive rights to grow pot commercially.

"I can't believe I voted 'no' when it was finally on the ballot," said Marty Dvorchak, 62, of the northern Cincinnati suburb of Fairfield. "I think it's ridiculous that marijuana is illegal." But he said he had problems with the way the initiative is structured.

Steve Mosier, 61, of Cincinnati, also voted no because of similar concerns, even though he says he generally supports legalization."
