Corrections and Additions: The October 15 Pipeline omitted Marion DD and Montgomery DD levy requests. The local ballot issue database generated by the Ohio Secretary of State’s (SOS) office was incomplete, leading to gaps in our compilation. The SOS office has been contacted regarding this matter.

Results are unofficial as of 11:30 p.m. 11-4-14 and will be certified by respective County Boards of Elections at a later date.
