CLEVELAND (AP) – All four election board members for Cuyahoga County, troubled by recount rigging charges and voting machine problems, have been told to resign or face being fired, a state official said Monday.
Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner said she called the four board members of Ohio’s most populous count late Sunday, asking them to leave by close of business Wednesday.
The county, which includes all of Cleveland, has had difficulty adjusting to electronic voting. Last May’s primary, the first attempt at electronic voting in the county, was marred by absent or poorly trained poll workers, lost vote-holding computer cards and a polling place that opened hours late.
