COLUMBUS (WCMH)–Beyond the presidential race, there are a lot of big issues on the ballot here in Central Ohio, including many school levies.

The biggest is for Columbus City Schools. Here are some of the others that we will be following on Tuesday:

Hilliard schools are asking for a 4.5-mill permanent operating levy combined with a $50 million bond issue. They want to build a new middle school building.

It would cost homeowners about $169 a year per $100,000 of property value.

Next, Bexley is seeking a bond issue of 1.38 mills. This replaces a bond issue from the 1990s, so it wouldn’t increase taxes.

In Westerville, voters will decide on Issue 59–a levy of 7.13 mills.

It replaces an emergency levy raising $16.5 million.

Also, Licking Heights, Amanda Clearcreek, and Big Walnut have school issues that we will be following Tuesday night.

On Monday night, join us for an election special covering all the races you care about. It’s at 7:30, right after an extended NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.
