The Hamilton County Board of Elections voted Tuesday to issue subpoenas to 19 voters who are suspected of voting twice in the November election, which could lead to criminal prosecutions.
The board also voted to issue nine subpoenas to people who are not suspected of voting twice but are “fact witnesses,’’ according to Tim Burke, the chairman of the Hamilton County Board of Elections.
Most of the voters being investigated are persons who allegedly voted by absentee ballot and then cast provisional ballots at polling places on election days.

The Hamilton County Commissioner could now vote Wednesday on a resolution asking the Metropolitan Sewer District to end its responsible bidder policy on contracts.

He said he's working with Commission President Chris Monzel on a solution.
