Sunshine and warm temperatures may lure even the passive voter today ... poll workers in Summit County are pleased with voter turnout early in the day.
As of 8:30 a.m. - just two hours after the polls opened - 66 people had cast ballots at precinct 8B, 63 at 8D and 63 at 8Q. Poll workers describe those numbers as steady or heavy.
By 9:00 a.m., 104 voters had checked in at precinct 1H and another 66 at 1D - both housed at the public library at Highland Sqaure.
A lot of the talk seems to be more about issues than candidates. John, who voted at Case Elementary School says the Akron Public Schools levy is important to him.
"I think it's important to have good schools for our city and for our neighborhoods, otherwise housing values decrease and strong schools give us a strong community," said John.
Lori marked her ballot at the public library in Highland Square, but says her property taxes are high enough.
I'm a big supporter of 'no new taxes right now' and unfortunately, I voted no against the Akron Public School tax levy, too," said Lori.
Voters also seemed to be drawn out because of State Issue 2.
