2020 is looking to be a pivotal year in politics. But this year's elections are about much more than the race for the White House. And the coronavirus pandemic is proving to be a complicating factor. WKSU, our colleagues at public radio stations across Ohio and the region and at NPR will bring you coverage of all the races from the national to the local level.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has won Ohio's Democratic presidential primary. See live results below.

Ohio's in-person primary, originally scheduled for March 17, was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Lawmakers then extended absentee voting until April 28.

By then, the Democratic race became something of a foregone conclusion. While there are still 10 names on the Ohio ballot, everyone but former Vice President Joe Biden has dropped out. 

Since then, Biden's former rivals - including Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, billionaire Mike Bloomberg and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren - have endorsed him for president, as has former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump, seeking a second term, is the only candidate on the Republican side. In 2016, Trump won Ohio over Clinton.

In addition to the presidential contest, WOSU is watching a number of other races as well, including party primaries for Congress and some local races.

While mail-ballots had to be postmarked by Monday, polls officially closed Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. The below tallies will update as soon as votes start to come in from the Ohio Secretary of State's Office.
