Voters in Ohio reject many of 19 school tax issues

NEW CARLISLE, Ohio (AP) — Unofficial results show voters rejected about two-thirds of the 19 school tax issues in special elections around Ohio.

The Ohio Secretary of State’s office says about one-fourth of Ohio’s counties had special elections Tuesday. The 28 tax issues across 23 counties included 19 school issues. Unofficial results from county election boards show voters rejected 13 school issues and approved six.

Voters rejected a particularly large 12.37-mill levy for Tecumseh (teh-KUHM’-suh) Local Schools in Clark County. It would have cost the owner of a $100,000 property nearly $433 a year. Voters have turned down nine other ballot issues since 2004 in the western Ohio district.

Voters approved renewal of a levy for Cloverleaf Local Schools in northeast Ohio’s Medina (meh-DY’-nuh) County while rejecting the district’s request for an additional levy.
