COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Voters have turned down a measure to overhaul the size and structure of the Columbus City Council.

Unofficial election results posted by the Franklin County Board of Elections Tuesday night pointed to a resounding defeat of Issue 1.

The measure would have created a 13-member council, with 10 members elected by district and three at-large. It also would have required the council to add two districts each time the city grew by 150,000 residents, up to a maximum of 22 districts.

The Ohio Secretary of State’s Office says there were 27 other issues up for a vote Tuesday. They included school levies in Coshocton, Lorain and Sandusky counties and village or city income tax issues in Cuyahoga, Stark and Summit counties.
