Although it's only the beginning of February, it's election day in the Olmsted Falls and Columbia school districts as well as the city of Amherst. Here's a look at what's on the ballot:

Olmsted Falls An 8.7 mill operating levy. The Olmsted Falls City Schools have tried to pass a levy for over a year and have not been successful. In fact, the last time Olmsted Falls passed an operating levy was in 1999. Many cuts have been made already, including the end of busing for students who live within 2 miles of their school. Many more cuts are expected should the levy fail.

Columbia There are 2 levies on the ballot for the Columbia Schools. The first is a 3.1 mill renewal of a 5 year operating levy. The second is a new 2.75 mill continuous improvement levy that will be used to build an addition to Columbia Middle School and a new elementary school to replace Copopa Elementary, which was built in 1921 and is beginning to fall into disrepair

Amherst An 1.17 mill, 28 year bond issue to finance an addition to the Amherst Public Library. The addition would be 24,000 square feet and bring the total square footage of the library up to 38,000. The library would remain open during the renovation.

The polls will be open until 7:30 tonight, so if you live in Amherst, Columbia Station, Olmsted Falls, or Olmsted Township, WBWC encourages you to do your civic duty and VOTE!

Toyota parts on the way The parts to fix Toyotas being recalled should be at dealerships this week. 4.2 million Toyotas have been recalled thus far because the accelerators can hang, causing the cars to not stop.

Here's a look at the stories we're covering today:

One casino issue on the ropes... Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner announced that LetOhioVote.org fell 27,065 signatures shy of the 241,366 needed to put Governor Strickland's plan to install slot machines at horse tracks across Ohio. The group now has 10 days to get those signatures.

...One headed for votes The Ohio House voted 71-26 on Wednesday to put an issue on the ballot that would change the location of the proposed Columbus casino. This was necessary because the specific locations of the four casinos were included in the original constitutional amendment that approved the casinos. If the measure fails, Penn National Gaming says that they will build on the original site.

More jobs at NASA Glenn? Senator Sherrod Brown predicted yesterday that there will be enough money in the White House budget due out on Monday to create new jobs at NASA Glenn Research Center. The majority of these jobs will be in new aerospace projects that should offset any losses in the space program. NASA has had no comment.

Obama, Brown related Genealogists in New England say that President Obama and newly elected Massachusetts senator Scott Brown are 10th cousins. That's right, the President lost his filibuster-proof majority in the Senate to his cousin! In other strange family history news, Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos learned this morning that he is related to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
