MIAMI COUNTY — The Miami County Board of Elections met Monday morning, approving the poll workers who will be working during the June 7 Special Election.
During the June 7 Special Election, voters of the 8th Congressional District will vote on former U.S. Representative John Boehner’s replacement. Warren Davidson, a businessman from Troy, received the Republican nomination during the March 15 Presidential Primary. Democratic candidate Corey Foister and Green Party candidate James Condit Jr. will also be running for Boehner’s seat.
The special election will be county-wide. The board will also be utilizing their newly purchased poll books during this election.
During their Monday meeting, the board also approved purchasing two charging carts on which to store their e-poll books and keep the e-poll books fully charged.
“It’ll take two carts, but it will charge every tablet and keep them in small location,” Deputy Director Eric Morgan said, adding that it will also organize those Toshiba tablets that are being used as the e-poll books.
The board approved the purchase of carts from School Outlet for approximately $1,421, which included two charging carts at a cost of approximately $578 each and a shipping cost of $265.
The board’s office is also currently conducting the logic and accuracy testing on the voting machines for the special election.
