Provisional ballots were not to be counted at the unofficial canvas, according to Director Llyn McCoy. The official canvass is completed three weeks after the conclusion of the election and will be released after review from the Ohio secretary of state’s office.
Candidates elected by their party in the primary will face each other in the general election on Nov. 3.
