• Oct 15, 2018 at 9:00 AM

In an online poll last week, the Norwalk Reflector again asked readers who they favored in the races for Huron County auditor and Huron County commissioner in the November general election.

A similar poll involving these two races was conducted three weeks ago.

More than 250 people participated in the poll, down from the 450 who voted in the first one.

Republican incumbent Joe Hintz, Democratic challenger Melissa James and Independent challenger Bob Morgan are competing in the commissioner’s race.

In this poll, Morgan received 48 percent of the votes, while Hintz had 25 percent and James had 23 percent.

In the similar poll conducted three weeks ago, Morgan received 42 percent of the votes, while Hintz had 27 percent and James had 24 percent.

Here are the poll results from the most recent poll:

• Bob Morgan - 48% 

• Joe Hintz - 25%

• Melissa James - 23%

• I can't or won't vote in this race - 4%

• Write-in candidate - 0%

Democratic incumbent Roland Tkach faces Republican challenger Tom Dunlap in the auditor’s race.

More than 70 percent of the poll responders favored the incumbent. 

In the similar poll conducted three weeks ago, Tkach received 68 percent of the votes while Dunlap received 27 percent.

Here are the poll results from the most recent poll:

• Roland Tkach - 71%

• Tom Dunlap - 24%

• I can't or won't vote in this race - 4%

• Write-in candidate - 0%

At the state level, Republican Mike DeWine and Democrat Richard Cordray are running for governor, each hoping to succeed John Kasich, who cannot run again due to term limits.

Republican Dave Yost and Democrat Steven Dettelbach are running for DeWine’s attorney general position.
