The 2000 United States presidential election in Ohio took place on November 7, 2000 throughout all 50 states and D.C., which was part of the 2000 United States presidential election. Voters chose 21 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice President.

Ohio was won by Governor George W. Bush by a 3.51% margin of victory. Prior to the election, most news organizations considered Ohio a swing state. Had Gore won the Florida recount, and therefore the entire election, this would have been the first time since 1960 in which Ohio voted for the losing presidential candidate.
