CHICAGO — Voters in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan were in the mood to say yes Tuesday, approving bond issues for a new hospital in Indianapolis, a capital improvement plan for Detroit Public Schools, and a measure allowing casinos to set up shop in Ohio’s four largest cities.

In Michigan, voters approved just over 85% of all bond issues for a total of $702.6 million of new borrowing, according to data compiled by Ipreo and The Bond Buyer. Indiana voters approved three of the four bond issues appearing on ballots for a total of $825.4 million. In Ohio — where less than half the bond proposals passed — voters approved a total of $495.7 million in borrowing.
