CINCINNATI - If you live in Ohio, it’s Election Week and we’ve got you covered. That and more in this week’s 9 things to know.

1. Expect chilly nights and mornings this week and rain mid-week. 9 First Warning Weather is forecasting a clear weekend so far, though.

2. Who Dey! The Cincinnati Bengals travel to Baltimore Sunday to take on the Ravens. Kick off is scheduled for 1 p.m.

3. Tuesday is Election Day. There are no scheduled races in Kentucky or Indiana but many in Ohio. We’ve got a guide for you with voter information for residents of Warren, Clermont, Hamilton and Butler counties.

4. How does Cincinnati vote? With 200,000 registered to vote in Tuesday’s election you can take a look at the demographics with the city’s 175 precincts.

5. Even if you don’t live in Ohio, and you’re a fan of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, you might want to pay attention to Issue 2, a tax levy that would generate $6.8 million in revenue for the zoo.

6. The Supreme Court is expected to settle a dispute over prayers in government this week. Although the case involves a Rochester suburb, Greece, N.Y., it could set the tone for religion in public places on a larger scale.

7. Families benefiting from government food assistance will have to stretch their supplements even further now because the government started reducing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits Nov. 1. About 100,000 Tri-State families will feel the impact of this.

8. The Affordable Care Act is becoming a reality for Americans. What does this look like in your life? Read more here.

9. If you used the iGoogle personalized landing page, you've probably noticed it no longer exists. Google shutdown the service. An article in the Washington Post explains how social media helped send iGoogle to the digital graveyard.
