Elected President

Woodrow Wilson
Democratic

The 1912 United States presidential election in Ohio took place on November 5, 1912. Ohio voters chose 24 electors to the Electoral College, which selected the president and vice president.

Ohio was won by the Democratic nominee Woodrow Wilson and his running mate Thomas R. Marshall.

Ohio had been a Republican state since 1856, but broke tradition due to the strong performance by the Progressive Party (also known as the Bull Moose Party) led by Theodore Roosevelt, which ultimately split the Republican vote. Theodore Roosevelt was able to gain 22.16 percent of the popular vote - though trailed the Republican Party nominee William Howard Taft, an Ohio native, who won 26.82 percent of the popular vote, and Woodrow Wilson of the Democratic Party who won 40.96 percent of the popular vote.
