The Board of Elections is responsible for
ensuring fair, accurate, and timely
elections at primary, general, and special
elections. These responsibilities include
the assurance that adequate supplies of
ballots and absentee voter materials are
available for elections and that provisions
are made for candidates to declare their
candidacy based on the time frame
established by the Ohio Revised Code. The
office also receives petitions for
nominations, checks signatures and addresses
for validity, and monitors campaign expenses
to ensure compliance with the law.
Elections are administered in each county
by a four-member board of elections which
consists of two Republicans and two
Democrats appointed by the
Ohio Secretary of State at the
recommendation of each county party. The
board employs a director, who must be of the
opposing political party of the chairman of
the board of elections, and a deputy
director, who must be of the political party
of the chairman of the board.
