Ohio Early Voting Begins

Ohioans can cast an early ballot for the Nov. 8 election starting Tuesday. 

Voters this fall will decide whether the state should toss out a law governing public employee unions that was passed this spring. The measure limits the collective bargaining abilities of more than 350,000 teachers, nurses, firefighters, police and other public workers around the state.

Another question facing voters is whether the state's constitution should be amended to prohibit governments from requiring Ohioans to buy health insurance.

A third ballot question would increase the age limit for judges from 70 to 75.  Ohio is one of 32 states that allow any voter to cast an early ballot by mail or in person without a reason.

The last day to register to vote for the election is Oct. 11.
