Press Release from the Wayne County Board of Elections

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.
