We would like to thank our dedicated precinct election officials who served on Tuesday. It's easy to understand how critical their role is in conducting fair and lawful elections.
Lake County has 162,255 registered voters. Of that number, around 800 are in the "eye of the storm" every election cycle in service to Lake County. We call it the eye of the storm because campaigning is arguably nastier than ever and false information surrounding elections are abundant; however, despite these realities, from the early vote center in Painesville, to the 51 polling locations on election day, our election officials provided a calm atmosphere for voting while upholding the election laws of Ohio.
We are grateful to have them.
