COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio elections board officials are reporting light but steady turnout in primary voting especially in communities with contentious issues such as school levies.

Franklin County Elections Board spokesman Ben Piscitelli (pihs-keh-TELL'-ee) says things are going well considering polling places for 15 percent of county voters had changed since the last election to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Hamilton County Elections Board Director Amy Searcy says neighborhoods with contested issues and candidate races are seeing more turnout.

Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Elections Board Director Pat McDonald says light but steady turnout during the day was expected to pick up as people get off work.

Voters were deciding only one statewide issue Tuesday, whether taxpayers should continue to pay for a program for repairs and upgrades to roads and bridges.
