The Wayne County Court of Common Pleas has set aside the Election Results for the Baughman Road District Levy for the May 2, 2017 Special Election.  An Agreed Judgment Entry was approved by the Court on June 21, 2017.


Statement from the Wayne County Board of Elections regarding the May 2, 2017 Special Election Baughman Township Road District Levy

Despite its error in issuing improper ballots to the Baughman Township residents who also reside in Ward 1 of the City of Orrville, the Wayne County Board of Elections is mandated by Ohio law to include all votes cast in the May 2, 2017 election of the Baughman Township Road District Levy. Pursuant to Ohio Revised Code sections 3515.08, et seq., the results of this election may only be set aside by a court of law after the filing of an election contest by qualified electors within fifteen days of the Board’s May 22, 2017 certification.


PRESS RELEASE - May 3, 2017

During the May 2, 2017 Special Election, an issue arose regarding the Baughman Township Road District Levy.  Baughman Township voters, who reside within the Orrville City limits and who are not part of the Baughman Township Road District, were mistakenly provided ballots permitting them to vote on the Baughman Township Road District Levy.  After a preliminary investigation, it was determined that the error was caused in the programming stages of the balloting system and was not discovered in proofreading processes.  The Wayne County Board of Elections is currently working with the Ohio Secretary of State’s office and legal counsel to review the situation and work towards a solution prior to the official certification of results scheduled for May 22, 2017.
