Loveland, Ohio РLate Tuesday, Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlmann ruled that voters should have an extra 90 minutes to vote because Hamilton County Board of Elections’ new [quote_box_right]Bailey Elected РFitzgerald and Settle retain Loveland Council seats[/quote_box_right]electronic voter ID system (Electronic Poll Books) did not work properly at all locations, including Loveland. It was also a failure of poll workers not using the traditional paper-bound-book of registered voters that voters have been so familiar Рwith when they realized the machines were not doing their job.

After the court ruling, Ohio Secretary of State John Husted issued this order:

Voting locations in Hamilton County ONLY to remain open until 9:00 PM; No County may release statewide election results until 9:00 PM.

It wasn’t until after 1 AM Wednesday morning that Hamilton County had counted all of the votes cast in Loveland.

Those who took advantage of the extended voting hours had to cast “Provisional Ballots” that will not be counted for another 10 days.

Here are the un-official election results for candidates and issues on the November 3, 2015 General Election as of 1:30 AM Wednesday morning.

Loveland school district board member Kathryn Lorenz issued this statement about serving another four years. She and Art Jarvis ran un-opposed for the two open seats.

Although it is much simpler running unopposed in the 2015 election than it was running in a very contested race for my first term in 1991, it is a no less important effort. I am honored to be able to serve Loveland students and staff and look forward to working for Loveland citizens for the next four years. I still believe that public education is a cornerstone of our American democracy.  РKathy Lorenz

Loveland councilman, Mark Fitzgerald was re-elected. He said last night, “The people have spoken.¬†It is with humble appreciation that I will continue to serve our community.¬†Thanks for your confidence in me.”

Newcomer, Kathy Bailey was elected, and incumbent, Angie Settle kept her seat on Loveland Council. Settle said early Wednesday morning, “I am honored that the citizens of Loveland have placed their confidence and trust in me for another term. Thank you for returning our team to City Council so we may continue our forward looking leadership and our unwavering commitment to this vibrant and exciting community.”

The renewal levy for the Little Miami school district passed by a wide margin.
