COLUMBUS, Ohio – Voting closes Saturday to help decide which influential Ohioan will be memorialized as a statue and represent the state at the U.S. Capitol.

Ohioans of all ages can choose from a list of 10 finalists and cast their ballots at one of three dozen voting locations across the state. Ballots also can be downloaded online — at www.legacyforohio.org — and submitted via e-mail or traditional mail, but they must be turned in or postmarked by June 12.

Kim Schuette, communications manager for the Ohio Historical Society in Columbus, said about 13,000 ballots have been sent to the center so far. She anticipates a flood of ballots to arrive next week from polling places that stockpiled ballots to send in one batch after voting closes.
