Two Bomb Threats Mar Otherwise "Smooth" Election

Mar 6, 2012

As Ohioans vote in this Super Tuesday primary election, turnout is reported to be light…and there are few glitches, according to the state’s top elections official. Secretary of State John Husted, though, reports that bomb threats have disrupted voting at two different polling places.

There was a bomb threat in Allen County," Hustead says, "That polling location was moved from Lima Senior High School to an adjacent church. We are tracking down details right now of another bomb threat in Lorraine County. We are, at this point, encouraging voters to go vote at the Board of Elections until another location can be set up."

Husted says except for those 2 bomb threats and what he calls “minor glitches,” the voting process across Ohio is going, in his words, pretty smoothly.
