Bill Clinton was still basking in what many regarded as Hillary Clinton's big win in the first presidential debate this week. And so were the roughly 400 people gathered to hear him in a high school gym in Cleveland last night (Tuesday). WKSU’s M.L. Schultze reports:

“Anybody watch that debate last night? Whoa!"

Among the tens of millions of people watching last night’s first presidential debate were dozens of volunteers and supporters in central Ohio, at gatherings put together by the Clinton and Trump campaigns. Statehouse correspondent Karen Kasler stopped by two of them.

In a house in Groveport south of Columbus, a few dozen guests are spread out on chairs and sofas in the living room and the finished basement party room, watching their candidate Hillary Clinton.

Some of the estimated 3,000 homeless people in Cleveland are getting some help today registering to vote in November’s presidential election.  The Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless set up registration tables at three shelters to help give them a voice in the country’s direction.

A state lawmaker says a newly issued court ruling will mean 1.2 million voters will be added back onto Ohio's voter rolls.

The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted improperly removed voters from the rolls. Husted said he was removing dead voters, those who hadn’t voted often enough or those who had moved. Democratic Representative Kathleen Clyde says some of those will be restored now due to this recent court ruling.
