Voters should watch for postcards

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: July 26, 2012

Summit County residents who will be voting in the Aug. 7 special election should keep an eye out for a bright orange postcard that will be arriving in their mailboxes any day.

 

The postcard will tell them where they will vote on Election Day. The board cut precincts and polling locations to save money. The board sent about 40,000 cards to inform voters of the changes.

 

In Summit County, voters will decide five issues: a fire/EMS levy and a road levy in Richfield Township and school issues in the Barberton, Coventry and Woodridge districts.

 

The board has so far received about 400 absentee applications and had about 300 early ballots returned. Special elections typically have low turnouts, with 15 to 20 percent of voters casting ballots.

 

Voters can visit the board’s website at www.summitcountyboe.com to check their polling locations for the August election. The board has not yet decided on the polling locations for the Nov. 6 presidential election. After these sites are approved, the board will add this information to its site and mail more postcards to voters.
