Secretary of State Husted Appoints Charles Craynon to the Shelby County Board of Elections

COLUMBUS –Secretary of State Jon Husted has appointed Charles R. Craynon as a member of the Shelby County Board of Elections. Mr. Craynon will complete the unexpired term of James W. Thompson.

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.

Charles Craynon was recommended by the Shelby County Democratic Party.
