Everything you need to know for today's election

Need to brush up on the latest campaign and election news before you head to the polls? Take a look at our in-depth coverage of the Ohio primary. 

Polls are open today from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Once you get to your polling location you can request to pull a Democrat, Republican or Independent ballot. To vote for a party's presidential nominee, you must ask for that party's ballot. Independent voters can only vote for issues in a primary. 

How to vote

Here's everything you need to know about how to vote and how it will work. 

Who should I vote for? 

That's all up to you. But this quiz might help you decide. 

OK, but can you tell me some more about the presidential candidates? 

Four Republicans remain in the race for the White House: businessman Donald Trump, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Tuesday's Ohio race will likely come down to a race between Kasich and Trump for 66 delegates. 

Meanwhile for the Democrats former Secretary of State and First Lady Hillary Clinton is battling longtime Senator Bernie Sanders for the nomination. 

Here's a look at our coverage of the races so far. 

Will my vote matter today? 

Absolutely. For the Republicans, the race could very well come down to southwest Ohio. And, the race between Sanders and Clinton could be surprisingly close, especially after our neighbors up north in Michigan turned out unexpectedly for Sanders last week. 

Are there any local races I should care about? 

Tons! Here's a look at the biggest local political races you can vote for Tuesday.
