The voters have spoken. The election is over, and it is time to move forward. Whether your candidate won or lost, or you are happy are angry about issues, levies and bonds … look ahead not back. That is what makes our country great and helps sustain a thriving republic.

Voter turnout in Geauga and Cuyahoga counties was pretty much as expected. In other words, about half of registered voters went to the polls. In many countries, that is a shocking statistic. But is it normal here, especially for midterm elections. In Geauga County, there was a 62.6% turnout, or 42,556 voter ballots in a county with 67,924 registered voters. In Cuyahoga County, there was 46.1% voter turnout, with 404,940 ballots cast in a county with 878,590 registered voters.
