S. Toledo district results will not be posted until later


Results in the race for the South Toledo district council seat will not start to be posted online until all other elections results are counted and released, Lucas County Elections Director Gina Kaczala said.

Ms. Kaczala said the board of elections had to "create two different databases." The second database is exclusively for the District 2 council race.

Voters in District 2 cast paper ballots only because the city’s filing deadline did not leave enough time to load the race onto voting machines.

Four are vying to fill the seat vacated by D. Michael Collins after his victory over Mayor Mike Bell. Incumbent Matt Cherry, a Democrat and business agent for Sheet Metal Workers Local 33 — who was appointed to the seat by council when Mayor D. Michael Collins took office — is attempting to retain the post in today's special election against challengers Democrat Bob Vasquez, a member of the Toledo Board of Education since 2008; Republican Joe Celusta, and political independent Marcia Helman, a South Toledo business owner.
