Secretary of State Jon Husted's office says polling places around Ohio opened for voting without any reports of major problems today(11/7/17).

Ohio voters will decide ballot issues that would place limits on drug prices and expand victims' rights in criminal proceedings, along with several mayoral races. Issue 1 is meant to expand crime victims' rights. Opponents say such laws elsewhere have had unintended, negative consequences. Issue 2 aims to cut prescription drug prices for the poor, injured workers and prisoners. Opponents say it could reduce access and raise some prices.

While low voter turnout is typical in off-year elections, early voting figures in some counties indicate voter interest is higher than normal. The polls are open until 7:30 p.m. Monday evening.
