Secretary of State Husted Awards $1,600 to the Jefferson County Board of Elections for Permanent Polling Place Improvements
Enhancements ensure polling locations comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act.

COLUMBUS – As part of an ongoing effort to improve permanent polling locations, Secretary of State Jon Husted today announced that nearly $1,600 was awarded to the Jefferson County Board of Elections for improvements at the Plum Run Church of Christ. The grant money allowed for the installation of a 24-foot asphalt parking area, which will accommodate two accessible parking spaces and the appropriate vertical signage. The Jefferson County Board of Election will be providing the materials and labor to finish off the project by striping the parking spaces. The Wells Township Trustees also provided funding for the project. 

“Polling places should be accessible to all Ohioans, regardless of physical limitations,” Secretary Husted said. “By providing funding for these projects we not only improve accessibility for Election Day, but also year round, which is a tremendous benefit to the local community.”

Counties and communities across the state have the opportunity to apply for permanent improvement grants throughout the year for polling place enhancements. Since Secretary Husted has taken office he has awarded nearly $192,500 for 66 permanent improvements statewide. Funding for these grants is authorized by the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) and is administered through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
