Meetings & Notices

The Ottawa County Board of Elections office will be closed Thursday, November 23rd and Friday, November 24th, 2017, in observance of Thanksgiving.  Normal office hours will resume on Monday, November 27th, 2017, at 8:30 a.m.

The Ottawa County Board of Elections office will meet Tuesday, November 21st at 11:00 a.m. for their regular board meeting and to conduct the Official Canvass of the November 7th General Election.  The meeting and canvass will be held at the Board of Elections office, 8444 West State Route 163, Oak Harbor, in the Veterans Memorial Building.

 

Does a Power of Attorney work for voting with the Board of Elections?  While a power of attorney works in most circumstances, it will not work at the Board of Elections. If a voter wishes to assign someone as their power of attorney specifically for voting, Form #10-F must be filed with the Board of Elections in the county where the voter is registered to vote. Form #10-F is “Attorney-in-Fact Authorization Executed Before a Notary Public” and declares that the designated power of attorney is allowed to sign voter-related paperwork (i.e., petitions, ballots) for the voter who is unable to do so for him or herself.  Form #10-F can be obtained at your local Board of Elections office or printed off at the Ohio Secretary of State website. The form must be notarized (notary available at Board of Elections office) and will be kept on file for all future elections until further notification.
