Mayoral primary in Cincinnati today

Last edited Tue Sep 10, 2013, 11:50 PM - Edit history (1)

Four candidates - two Democrats, one Libertarian, and one Independent.

The two Democrats, Roxanne Qualls and John Cranley are expected to win, and will proceed to the November general election, when a new City Council of nine persons will be elected to four-year terms.
This will be the first election for four-year terms; in the past City council held office for two years.

The biggest issues in the Mayor primary and general election are the streetcar to a limited part of the downtown area, and the leasing of the city's parking garages and parking meters to private entities, for 30 and 50 years.

Edited with election results: As expected John Cranley and Roxanne Qualls will move on to the Nov. election.
The primary was remarkable for the low turnout: only about 5% of registered voters bothered to cast ballots, far lower than in previous primaries for mayor.
