Of the 134,380 Registered Voters in Clermont County, approximately 30,000 will be receiving a bright green notification card sometime during the first week of October, advising them of a Precinct and/or Polling Location Change. The changes will be effective starting with the upcoming General Election, Nov. 5, 2013.
The Clermont County Board of Elections has consolidated numerous Precincts in the County in order to equalize the number of voters in each precinct. Presently, the Ohio Revised Code limits the number of Voters to a maximum of 1400 per precinct. All Boards of Elections across the state have been consolidating and splitting precincts in order to save money and comply with state requirements.
The Board has made 18 Polling Place changes in order to comply with ADA Handicapped Accessibility requirements, and in an effort to reduce waiting time for voting at the polls. Voters can go to the Board of Election’s Website at www.ClermontElections.org and use the Polling Location search link to verify their polling location for the upcoming Nov. 5 General Election.
The only areas not affected by these changes are the City of Loveland, the Villages of Amelia, Chilo, Felicity, Neville, Newtonsville and Owensville and the Townships of Jackson and Ohio.
These changes will save the County approximately $22,000 at every Primary and General Election.
