ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — Residents of a southwest Ohio village have proof of the rallying cry made during election turnout efforts that every vote matters.
A proposed levy in Arlington Heights on Tuesday brought out 126 voters and ended in a tie — 63 voted for it, 63 against. So the levy fails for now in the tiny village tucked between Interstate 75's northbound and southbound lanes just north of Cincinnati.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/16wFOrf ) reports the Hamilton County Board of Elections will recount the ballots Aug. 19. The levy would've cost the owner of a $100,000 home $241.22 in annual taxes. Village officials wanted funds to repave an avenue, among their projects.
Turnout was considered high for an August special election, with nearly a third of the community's registered voters casting a ballot.
