Primary Election Day; Polls Open for Voting
DAYTON -- Tuesday is Election Day throughout the Miami Valley. It's a crucial day that could decide whether school programs get slashed, police get fired, and who might be the next Dayton mayor.
There are three candidates running in the mayoral primary. Those taking on the incumbent were doing everything possible Monday to make sure they win. Dayton City Commissioner Nan Whaley has knocked on about 30,000 doors this year, talking to voters about how she would change the Gem City if elected mayor.
"We talk a lot about jobs and how important that is. If everyone has a job, everything else takes care of itself," she said.
But on Election Day eve, the conversation was more of a reminder to vote. Whaley says a lot of people have forgotten about the primary.
Also vying for the office are former Montgomery County Auditor and Judge A.J. Wagner.
"Anything can happen on Election Day so that's why you do as much work as you can to get the vote out and then you hold your breath for the results to come in," Wagner said.
Armed with laptops, snacks and coffee, Wagner and his crew hunkered down for a long night of last-minute campaign calls and answering voter questions.
"They want to know what you're going to do with the burned out building down the street, the vacant buildings and the crime somethings associated with those vacant buildings," he said.
Whaley and Wagner are taking on incumbent Mayor Gary Leitzell. ABC 22/FOX 45 reached out to him through phone and email, but didn't get a response to our interview request. However his secretary said he did not have any last-minute campaign plans.
The top two vote-getters Tuesday advance to the general election in November.
