OHIO (Indiana’s NewsCenter) -- On the ballot in the Buckeye State is a question about the state's union laws and health care.

Early turn out was sparse in Cleveland, but the referendum on the collective bargaining law could bring out a record number of voters in the off-year election.

The Republican led legislature passed Senate Bill Five last March. It banned strikes by public workers, scrapped binding arbitration, and prevents promotions based only on seniority.

Voters will decide whether to repeal the law. They are also being asked to amend the state constitution, allowing Ohio to opt out of federal health care reform.
