The Montgomery County Board of Elections is opening its doors to the public and media for a “Mock Election Open House” on Tuesday, September 18th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Lower Level of the County Administration Building, 451 W. Third Street, in Dayton.
“This is an exciting opportunity for our citizens to test out new voting equipment options and provide meaningful feedback in the decision making process,” said MCBOE Director Jan Kelly. “We invite all members of the public to participate in a mock election while getting a chance to see, touch and test voting equipment.”
Free parking and refreshments will be provided at the Mock Election Open House.
The State of Ohio is distributing $114.5 million to Ohio’s 88 county boards of elections to update voting equipment in time for the 2020 presidential election. Replacing all of Montgomery County’s current voting equipment will cost $8 million. Montgomery County is expected to receive $4.2 to $4.5 million in state funding.
