  • Voting in today’s election is over, and now the campaigns of candidates and levy issues must wait for the results.
    Jeanette Mullane, deputy director of the Stark County Board of Elections, expects the first results — which would reflect the more than 5,700 absentee ballots that were cast — to be released by 8:30 p.m.  Updates of the elections results will be posted throughout the night at CantonRep.com.
    Mullane said turnout appeared to be light throughout Stark County, which was expected as only seven contested candidate races and 19 issues appeared on the ballot. She also said no major problems were reported today.
    “This has actually been very quiet and calm for an election,” she said.
