The tie vote over where early voting takes place in Summit County is resolved.
At least, until the next Summit County Board of Elections meeting takes place.
Democrats and Republicans on the Board of Elections couldn't agree on a site; locations included the former H.H. Gregg store in Chapel Hill, the Beacon Journal building or the Board's offices on Grant Street.
Secretary of State Jon Husted made the decision; early voting will be held at the Elections offices on Grant Street, and told the Board to work with neighboring businesses to secure more parking.
In other decisions, Husted broke tie votes and ordered public comments to be permitted at Board of Election meetings; they'll have to figure out the rules.
Husted also voted to forward concerns over Akron City Council's use of government-paid for newsletters to the State Auditor. Republicans objected to the city-funded communications being used to advocate for ballot issues but state law treats government agencies operating under their own charter, such as the City of Akron, differently than other government bodies. Husted decided the legality is a question better answered by the Auditor's office.
Husted's decisions are in .pdf form at the bottom of this page.
