Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted recently announced that more than $11,300 was awarded to multiple county Boards of Elections for improvements to community facilities that are used as polling locations on Election Day.
Logan County is one of the communities benefiting from the money.
The Quincy Community Building received $1,400 to improve a 20 foot by 30 foot asphalt accessible parking area that accommodates two accessible spaces, complete with appropriate striping.
“Funding for each project not only makes polling locations more accessible on Election Day, but strengthens out communities year round,” Secretary Husted said. “It is important every Ohioan feels comfortable at the polls and is able to exercise their right to vote, no matter what their physical limitations may be.”
Counties and communities across the state gave the opportunity to apply for permanent improvement grants throughout the year for polling place enhancements.
