On Election Day, Virginia’s Legislature Is Up for Grabs; Ohio Voters Will Decide Abortion Rights 

HeadlineNov 07, 2023

Voters across the United States are heading to the polls today for statewide and local elections. In Ohio, voters will weigh in on a measure that seeks to establish the right to an abortion in the state constitution. Ohioans will also vote on legalizing recreational marijuana.

In Virginia, where the entire Legislature is on the ballot, Democrats are vying to retain their narrow control of the Senate and flip the House of Delegates to stop Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin from enacting his right-wing agenda on abortion, education, taxes and other issues.

Maine has a ballot initiative that could lead to the creation of the U.S.’s first statewide publicly owned electric utility company. Kentucky, Louisiana and Mississippi all have gubernatorial races.
