The 1964 United States presidential election in Ohio was held on November 3, 1964. The Democratic Party nominee, incumbent President Lyndon B. Johnson, overwhelmingly won the state of Ohio with 62.94 percent of the vote against Barry Goldwater’s 37.06 percent, carrying its 26 electoral votes. The 1964 election marks the only time a Democratic candidate for president won Ohio with over sixty percent of the popular vote (and the last time a nominee from either party has done so), the last time the Democrats carried more counties than the Republican candidate, and the last time the margin of victory for the Democratic candidate was in double digits.

This is the solitary election since the Civil War when Clinton, Warren and Geauga Counties have voted for a Democratic presidential candidate.[1] Ashland County, Auglaize County, Butler County, Champaign County, Clermont County, Crawford County, Darke County, Defiance County, Fairfield County, Fayette County, Greene County, Hardin County, Henry County, Highland County, Holmes County, Knox County, Licking County, Logan County, Madison County, Marion County, Medina County, Miami County, Morgan County, Morrow County, Muskingum County, Paulding County, Pickaway County, Preble County, Putnam County, Richland County, Shelby County, Van Wert County, Washington County, Wayne County, Williams County, and Wyandot County have never voted Democrat since, and Hamilton County would not do so again until 2008.[2]
