We CARES About All 88 County BoE’s
In the weeks before the end of the 2020 primary, our office began working with our county boards of elections to assess their needs for PPE, increased election infrastructure, poll workers, and temporary personnel in preparation for the general election. Recently, the Ohio Controlling Board authorized the use of federal dollars to allow the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office to send absentee ballot request forms to all 7.8 million registered voters in Ohio, as well as funding to provide the additional support our counties need to succeed. We are currently preparing a directive that will provide guidance for counties about how to utilize CARES dollars that are coming their way.
