The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections is scheduled to meet this afternoon to certify the results of the Nov. 6 general election -- which means the fate of the too-close-to-call bond issue for the Strongsville schools will finally be known.
Issue 116 is ahead by 3 votes, but the final tally will include previously uncounted absentee votes and up to 698 provisional ballots.
The final tally could also impact the race for 7th District House of Representatives.
Incumbent Mike Dovilla goes into the day ahead by 340 votes, but there were 1,930 provisional ballots cast in that race, meaning Democratic challenger Matt Patten could come out ahead.
Dennis Anderson, community outreach manager for the Board of Elections, said the results will be made public as soon as the board members vote to certify them. The meeting starts at 4:30 p.m.
Strongsville Patch will post the results as soon as they're available this afternoon.
