Deputies Receiving Online Election Refresher Training

Deputies are receiving online election refresher training from the Ohio Attorney General and the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy on their roles and responsibilities. We have a duty to help protect the election process. Included in the training is ORC 3501.35.

During an election and the counting of the ballots, no person shall Loiter, congregate, or engage in any kind of election campaigning within the area between the polling place and the small flags of the United States placed on the thoroughfares and walkways leading to the polling place, and if the line of electors waiting to vote extends beyond those small flags, within ten feet of any elector in that line.
