The question of whether Ohio would hold an election on Tuesday was up in the air late in the evening on election eve.
Republican Gov. Mike DeWine had attempted to postpone the state's 2020 presidential primary, but his plan was blocked by a judge.
DeWine responded that if the election went forward, it would not be seen as "legitimate."
On Friday, DeWine announced his administration could shut down the election as a "health emergency."
