35 Ohio races decided by 1 vote

Posted: Updated:

Ohio's top election official is stressing the importance of voting after a review of election results found a number of nail-biting contests in 2013.
    
Secretary of State Jon Husted said of the 110 recounts following the Nov. 5 election, 35 local races and eight local issues were decided by one vote or through breaking a tie.
    
Voters picked mayors and township trustees, along with city or village council and school board members. They also decided local tax matters.
    
Husted, a Republican, will be up for re-election this fall. He said in a written statement that the results prove that each vote can make a difference.
    
Husted said the close races also reinforce the need to make it easy to vote and hard to cheat in Ohio.
