The biggest story of 2020 in Ohio and worldwide was the COVID-19 outbreak.  On March 9th, Governor Mike DeWine declares a state of emergency after three people tested positive.  That began a series of health orders, starting with schools moving to remote learning, mass gathering limitations, closing restaurant and bar dining rooms and then other businesses. On March 22nd, the “Stay at Home” order was issued.  Businesses could open back up in the summer with specific guidelines to follow.  Plus, at the last minute, Ohio's primary election was pushed back from March until April, to give voters the chance to do mail-in voting.  Mail-in voting was one of the reasons that Ohio had a record number of ballots cast in the November election.
