Electric Aggregation Passes in Dayton, Xenia; Dayton Passage Very Close

 Voters passed electric aggregation in Xenia Tuesday by a margin of around 9 percent, and Dayton's ballot issue squeezed through with just a .51 percent margin in favor.

Montgomery County Board of Elections Director Jan Kelly says a final count will be complete Nov. 26, and official results including any recounts will be issued Dec. 6. Because the Dayton's aggregation proposal won by just 75 votes in the "official unofficial" tally (7,318 in favor and 7,243 against), it's still possible the final count could go the other way.

Dayton Opposes "Stand Your Ground" Bill

The city of Dayton introduced a resolution Wednesday that opposes “stand your ground” legislation being considered at the Ohio house.

Right now, Ohio law says you have the right to defend yourself if you’re in your home. But if you’re outside, you have to retreat. If House Bill 203 is passed, it would allow you to fight back anywhere.

Dayton is the first city in the state to come out against the proposed legislation. Commissioner Nan Whaley says it won’t help the city’s initiative to reduce gun violence, and that citizens have raised concerns about the bill.
