Some light turnout as Ohio polls open for primary

Updated:

There have been no reports of problems so far at Ohio polls during the state's Super Tuesday primary.

State elections officials didn't forecast a turnout, but some polling places saw few voters turning up in the very early hours of balloting.

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum have devoted much of their campaign attention to Ohio in recent days. In Westerville, near Columbus, textbook editor Heather Froelich voted for Romney, saying he has the "right experience and values."

Columbus Republican Josh Brooks considered voting for Romney but says Newt Gingrich won him over with his energy plan. Brooks says Gingrich is "tough" and has "big ideas."

Besides presidential contenders, voters have plenty of choices to make. They include a contested primary for the Republican nominee to oppose Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, along with a match between Democratic House members Marcy Kaptur and Dennis Kucinich, whose districts were pushed together under congressional redistricting.

Join Bob Black and Leslie Barrett tonight beginning at 8:00 p.m. for early results.  Bob and Leslie will have a complete Decision 2012 wrap up tonight at eleven on 21 News.
