Fifty-seven percent of votes were cast against the measure.
Cuyahoga Falls voters voted down the five-year, 3-mill school levy on Tuesday. Ohio.com has reported the levy was defeated with 57 percent of votes. "Obviously, the result this evening is a huge disappointment," Superintendent Dr. Todd Nichols said Tuesday night on the district's Facebook page. "As any good coach does after a loss, they examine their practices to decipher what went wrong. As I am the coach in this situation, I will do the same. ...Nonetheless, this is a hard pill to swallow." The levy would have generated $11.1 million and paid for upgrades in technology, security, transportation and curriculum. Stay with Patch as we follow up on this story post-election.

If Issue 4 passes, the permanent improvement levy would raise $11.1 million over the next five years.
If approved by voters on May 7, the district's proposed 5-year, 3-mill permanent improvement levy would generate $11.1 million in revenue and cost homeowners $91.88 per year for every $100,000 in valuation. By law, none of the revenue would fund the salaries of teachers, administrators or school staff.

Former Lakewood mayor and potential candidate for Ohio governor, FitzGerald told a group of college students he was the first Cuyahoga County official to endorse Obama.
As Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald travels the state rallying support for his possible run for Ohio governor, he's been attracting the attention of the folks at Politifact Ohio. Recently, they checked out a claim published late last month by the Cincinnati Enquirer that FitzGerald, the former mayor of Lakewood, said he was the first Cuyahoga County official to endorse Barack Obama for president. Politifact Ohio called that claim mostly false. They weren't able to prove that he wasn't the first, but neither was FitzGerald. Does this mean anything to you in deciding whether you think FitzGerald has a shot at the governor's seat? Tell us what you think.

President Obama defeated Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election.
President Barack Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden were re-elected Tuesday night, defeating Republican challenger Mitt Romney and his vice-presidential running mate Rep. Paul Ryan. NBC News called the presidential election for Obama around 11:15 EST. The president sent a message on Twitter at 10:14 saying simply, "This happened because of you. Thank you."

The race was filled with negative campaigning on both sides, from President Obama attacking Romney’s business experience with Bain Capital to Romney lambasting Obama’s handling of the economy. The race tightened during the final months of the campaign, with gaffes and surges …
