Cincinnati mayoral primary today

By Gregory Korte
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Voters will make history in Cincinnati today. The city's first-ever nonpartisan primary for mayor will create a one-on-one runoff.

        The candidates are Bill Brodberger (independent), Courtis Fuller (Charter Committee), Charlie Luken (Democrat) and Michael Riley (independent).

        This year is the first time since 1925 that Cincinnati voters will elect a mayor directly, rather than as a member of City Council.

        The top two vote-getters will proceed to the Nov. 6 general election.

        Polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. For more information, call 632-7000 or go to www.hamiltonctyelections.org.
