Voting results on website tonight

Voting results in a two-man race for Hancock County commissioner and a three-way contest for state senator will be posted tonight on The Courier’s website.

Voters’ decisions about Van Buren school construction also will be posted at

The Courier website also will track voting on a Blanchard Valley Center levy, a Findlay City Schools levy, and tax issues in the Arcadia and McComb school districts.

Updated election results can be found tonight on:

  • A Republican primary contest between Hancock County Commissioner Phillip Riegle and former Commissioner Stephen Oman. No Democrats or independents are running, so tonight’s winner won’t have an opponent in the November general election.
  • A three-way Republican contest for state senator in the 1st Senate District. Sen. Cliff Hite of Findlay is being challenged by Milo Schaffner of Van Wert, and Corey Shankleton of Kunkle. The winner today won’t face an opponent in November. The 1st District includes Hancock, Hardin, Henry, Putnam, and all or parts of seven other counties.
  • Van Buren School District’s bid for a 6.9-mill, 37-year bond issue. The bond issue would generate $29.3 million to build classrooms and a new gym at the middle school and high school.
  • The Hancock County Board of Developmental Disabilities’ request for renewal of a 2.5-mill, five-year levy for Blanchard Valley Center. Voters throughout Hancock County will cast ballots on this issue.
  • Findlay School District’s request that a 5.9-mill levy for operations be renewed permanently.
  • Arcadia School District’s bid for renewal of a 1 percent, five-year income tax for operations.
  • McComb School District’s request for renewal of a half-percent, five-year income tax for operations.

As always, complete voting results on races and issues in Hancock and surrounding counties will appear in Wednesday morning’s edition of The Courier and on The Courier’s website.
