Secretary of State Husted Announces County Boards of Elections Appointments

COLUMBUS – Secretary of State Jon Husted today announced the appointment of 176 boards of elections members. The new board appointees, half of the 352 board members statewide, began their term on March 1, 2014.

“Serving as an elections official in Ohio is both and honor and responsibility,” Secretary Husted said. “I look forward to working with each newly appointed board member to continue our work to ensure that in Ohio it is easy to vote and hard to cheat.”

State law requires bipartisan representation on each of Ohio’s 88 county boards of elections. Each board is made up of two Republican members and two Democratic members, all of whom must be qualified electors in the counties for which they serve. The Secretary of State makes appointments to boards of elections based on the recommendations of the executive committees of the respective county political parties.

Terms for boards of elections members are staggered so that half of the board, one Democrat and one Republican, are up every two years.

Last month Secretary Husted welcomed more than 40 new board members to the state’s capitol, Columbus, where he administered the oath of office during a ceremony at the Statehouse. Photos from that event are available at the link below.
