Most voters in Clark County claim to be independents, yet in recent years, they have supported by very slim margins Democratic Party candidates at the national level. Among Clark County's more prominent residents was A.B. Graham, who founded 4-H Clubs. The county is also home to Wittenberg University. Ohio Governor Asa S. Bushnell was also a resident of Springfield. Backwoodsmen Simon Kenton lived in Springfield for a period of time, and his wife supposedly named the city of Springfield. Simon Kenton is buried in Urbana's Oakdale Cemetery, in nearby Champaign County.
