The next meeting of the CCAO/OAEO Joint Committee on Elections Administration will be held on Wednesday, June 29 at 10:30 a.m. as a conference call, though Committee members are most welcome to participate in the call from the CCAO office.
The purpose of the meeting is to give feedback to Secretary of State Husted's Office on a possible directive that could be issued later this summer or early fall requiring boards of elections to meet with their county commissioners to discuss the county's strategy in replacing voting equipment. County officials subsequently would provide the Secretary with a statement of intent outlining the type and amount of equipment the county is considering obtaining from the state term contract. The Secretary will compile this information and make it available to state officials, so that there is a clear understanding of the potential statewide cost for updating Ohio's voting equipment.
Last week's committee meeting was very productive. The committee met with representatives from the Secretary of State's office to discuss possible bid specifications for state term contract on new voting equipment. Committee members provided a few suggestions to the already thorough draft. Those suggestions will be incorporated into the document, and the Committee will receive the updated draft in the near future.
