Zaleski levy ties, therefore loses in general election
A proposed tax levy for the village government of Zaleski which was on the general-election ballot wound up in a tie, but that's the same as a defeat.

Zaleski village officials were seeking passage of a 5-mill, 5-year renewal levy for current expenses in the Nov. 7 general election. Following the unofficial count on Election Day evening, the levy was tied with 41 votes in favor and 41 votes against.

Vinton County elections officials conducted the official count on Monday afternoon, Nov. 27, which involved the recounting of all ballots from the unofficial count as well as 26 previously uncounted ballots, which were 22 provisional votes and four late absentee votes. However, none of the 26 uncounted ballot involved the Village of Zaleski and the 41-41 vote from the unofficial count remained unchanged.

Vinton County Elections Director Lynn Herrold explained that a tie on a levy or other non-candidate issue constitutes a defeat since a majority vote is required for passage. There will be no recount.

If two candidates had tied, there would be an automatic recount and if the tie stood, the winner would be determined by a coin flip or the drawing of lots.
