Precinct Election Officials Needed

The Portage County Board of Elections is looking for individuals who would like to be part of the democratic process by becoming Precinct Election Officials (PEOs). 

As part of our ongoing efforts, we are reaching out in search of honest, reliable, and community-minded individuals. On Election Day, nearly 600 citizens are needed to staff our 129 precincts. Without our PEOs, we simply cannot hold elections. 

They are present to make sure our elections are fair, impartial, and conducted according to Ohio law. To become a PEO, you must be registered to vote in Portage County, attend a training class, and have transportation to your assigned located. Election Day hours are 5:45 am until all necessary work is completed after the polls close at 7:30 pm. Those that serve as PEOs receive $120.

To sign up or for more information, please contact the Portage County Board of Elections at 330.297.3512 or 330.297.3515 or visit our website.
