Ohio remains a key battleground swing state that will be a key to victory for either candidate.

The final Ohio Poll from the Institute for Policy Research finds President Obama with a lead over GOP nominee Mitt Romney, 50 percent support to 48.5.

The president's edge is within the poll's 3-point margin of error and marks little change since last week's poll, which gave the president a 2-point lead.

The final poll results, released late Monday, are the latest in a number of surveys that show that the crucial battleground state is still split with voters.

The Buckeye State has a long history divided between Democrats and Republican and this election season is no different.

According to the Washington Post, of the last three presidential elections in Ohio, the Democratic nominee has averaged 48.66 percent of the vote while the Republican nominee has averaged 49.23 percent.

The biggest swing counties in the state will have the most say in which candidate will received the state's 18 Electoral College Votes. A map created by the Cleveland Plain Dealer shows the breakdown of the most influence in the state which includes: Wood, Carroll, Tuscarawas, Guernsey, Perry, Pike, Hocking, Vinton, Meigs, Lawrence and Scioto.

Hearings have already begun in Ohio over the validity of certain provisional ballots casted with several voting rights groups challenging directives put in place by the Republican secretary of state, according to Boston.com.

If the whole election comes down to being decided by the Buckeye state, these debated provisional ballots will be crucial for further challenges.

A recount in Ohio would be triggered if the margin of victory is 0.25 percent or less; it would be triggered in Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Florida, if the result is 0.5 percent or less.

The provisional ballots will be finalized on Nov. 17.
