COLUMBUS – Secretary of State Jon Husted has appointed Catherine J. Smalley as a member of the Jackson County Board of Elections. Mrs. Smalley will fill the unexpired term of Robert Rhodes.
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.
Catherine J. Smalley was recommended by the Jackson County Republican Party Executive Committee.
