CINCINNATI -- It's almost Halloween, so it's only natural to hear scary stories about scenarios that could lead to a tangled and nightmarish denouement in the presidential race.   What if the winner of the popular vote does not prevail in the Electoral College? What happens if we don't know who won the race for weeks? Can we still take Thanksgiving off?   Plenty of political experts expect the outcome of the election will be known shortly after polls close at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

In Ohio, it really was all about the turnout -- though in ways that defied the conventional political wisdom of the Buckeye State. A hugely motivated Republican base, driven in part by a "marriage protection" amendment to the state constitution, proved more than equal to the task of matching heavy increases in Democratic voting strength in Ohio's big cities. The GOP's extensive mobilization delivered the state's 20 electoral votes -- and the White House -- to President Bush. More than 5.

Zach Tolbert is just 15, so he doesn't have a driver's license and isn't old enough to vote. His real passions are skiing, his church youth group and his alto saxophone.

Like a prosecutor eager to share damning evidence, state Rep. George E. Terwilleger shoves a grainy Polaroid across his desk. Angelenos might strain their eyes trying to spot some irregularity in this shot of a government building and a placard reading, "Department of Human Services-- El Departamento de Servicios Humanos. " But Terwilleger sees such signs of the times as proof of multicultural chaos to come.

The former chief financial officer for the Ohio workers' compensation fund will plead guilty to trading investment opportunities for gifts, a prosecutor said Thursday. Terrence Gasper is accused of accepting money, college tuition for his son and stays at a Florida condominium. The state racketeering and money-laundering charges represent the latest development in a scandal that has upended Ohio politics and led to ethics charges against Republican Gov. Bob Taft.

OWENSVILLE, Ohio -- Republican vice presidential nominee Paul D. Ryan stepped up his criticism of the White House response to the attacks on American envoys, backing up his running mate by echoing Mitt Romney's assertion that the Obama administration gave “mixed signals.” Ryan's statement was more pointed here in Ohio than earlier in the day in Wisconsin as the GOP presidential ticket appeared to adjust to fallout from Romney's initial remarks....

Opening day, Cleveland Municipal Stadium, April 1978. On the mound, to toss out the ceremonial first pitch, the 31-year-old maverick mayor and enfant terrible of Ohio politics. He is wearing a bulletproof vest. Police sharpshooters ring the ballpark roof. Dennis J. Kucinich looks up at the crowd. When he is in attendance and Indian fans yell "Kill the bum," he knows they aren't talking about the umpire. His appearance on the field brings a chorus of boos from 75,000 fans.

A mug shot of former savings and loan magnate Charles H. Keating Jr., with prison numbers under his chin, flashes on local television screens. Appearing next to it: A smiling photo of Democratic Sen. John Glenn of Ohio, the former astronaut and the first American to orbit the Earth.
