The state of Ohio is issuing an order that will make hospitals postpone elective surgeries to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, save protective equipment for health care workers and keep beds open. 

Gov. Mike DeWine announced Tuesday hospitals will only perform surgeries that fall into these four categories:

  • Life saving
  • Preserves limbs or organs
  • Prevents progression of disease
  • Prevents worsening symptoms

Patients will be receiving a call from their hospitals as to whether their procedure has been canceled.

With the May primary just days away, some Ohioans might be thinking about switching political parties to cast a ballot for a friend who is running for office or have a say in more interesting, contested races. But doing so has possible pitfalls. 

In a partisan primary, voters are asked if they want a Republican, Democrat or an issues-only ballot. If you consider yourself a member of a particular party but switch to vote in the other party’s primary Tuesday, you will be recorded as affiliated with that other party.

STATE OF OHIO

The final early voting numbers are in and Ohio has seen a larger turnout heading into this year's primary than in the last gubernatorial primary four years ago.

It’s easy to guess that this year’s hotly contested races for the Republican and Democratic nomination for governor contributed to the larger turnout. There's also a state constitutional amendment that would change how Ohio's congressional districts are drawn.

The gubernatorial primary is the first election for statewide office since Ohio overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump in 2016. That means we could soon learn a lot about Ohio’s Republican voters and the real impact Trump has had on Ohio politics.

Mary Taylor and Mike DeWine have both invoked President Donald Trump’s name in their ads playing around Ohio.

DeWine has said he supports Trump’s border wall and travel ban.

A major party presidential candidate has failed to qualify for the Ohio primary ballot. Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports.

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley fell more than 200 signatures shy of making the Democratic primary ballot in Ohio.

Three Democratic candidates did qualify: Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and businessman Rocky De La Fuente.
