In odd-numbered years such as this one, Ohio elects municipal court judges. Such elections for local judgeships are often uneventful. This year saw 58 incumbents unopposed for re-election in the general election. However, one dramatic race stands out...

Two candidates running for a position on the Akron Municipal Court were neck-in-neck after the election and had to wait for a recount to decide their fate. Jon Oldham sought to unseat incumbent Katarina V. Cook. At first, it looked like he might do so. When the first results were posted, Oldham led in the race for Seat 1 by only 16 votes. After provisional and additional absentee ballots were counted on November 18, Cook was 17 votes ahead of Oldham. The results were certified on November 26, 2013. An automatic recount was then triggered due to the close race.[3][4][5] After the recount, Cook was shown to have won by 15 votes. In total, she had 13,888 votes to Oldham's 13,873.[6]
