Williams Couny Board of Election • Bryan, OH

By: Sheila McCrea

Williams County’s polling equipment will soon be in line for an overdue upgrade, but the cost to the county has not yet been determined.

Currently every piece of equipment used by the county, including polling machines, computers memory cards and more, were purchased in 2006.

A recent mandate from the Secretary of State’s Office has made things a bit complicated because it encouraged all counties to keep technology updated to ensure efficiency, but not all counties have the technology.

According to the Williams County Board of Elections officials, the state of Ohio has indicated to this point it will fund 50 percent of the new purchases after Governor Kasich’s budget cuts took effect, leaving counties like Williams in a difficult spot.
