ABSTRACT
The article presents information on various political developments related to the U.S. While the battleground states in the Midwest will play a vital role in determining the outcome of this year's presidential election, voters throughout the region will also weigh more than 140 ballot debt requests totaling roughly $3 billion. In Ohio, for example, voters will decide on $1.6 billion of debt for schools, while in Missouri they will decide the fate of several stadium-related bonding plans. School funding will top the ballot measures for Ohio voters, with about 66 items that will ask for bond authorization of $1.6 billion. Schools are also seeking tax hikes to bolster operating revenue.
