This first day of October is also the first day for absentee voting in Ohio.

In addition, Board of Elections deputy director Peggy Byers is asking the public to consider becoming a poll worker. The requirements to be a Precinct Election Official in Ohio include:
    -You must be at least 17 years of age and registered to vote
    -You must be a registered voter in the county in which you plan to work 
    -You must not have been convicted of a felony
    -You cannot be running as a candidate for the election

    -Serve the community and our democracy  
Poll worker training sessions for Washington County begin on October 10, with afternoon and evening sessions through October 17.
