Secretary of State of Ohio
Under the provisions of new7
election laws passed by the
101st General Assembly there
will be an elimination of the ex
pense and trouble of holding
election for "short" unexpired
terms for county offices.
Formerly, where a vacancy
occurred more than 30 days be
fore the General Election, an
election for that unexpired term
was required, even though such
term expired within two months
after the election.
Now, along with a number of
other beneficial and common
sense changes made in the elec
tion laws, effective January 1,
where the unexpired term for a
county office is scheduled to end
within one year from the date
of the General Election, the ap
pointee will hold office for the
full unexpired term.
In counties where vacancies
have occurred in the offices of
county commissioner (the one
whose term expires in 1959) and
the officc of county auditor, these
places will be filled in the 1956
elections. This is by reason of
the fact that the terms end more
than a year from the 1956 Elec
Where a vacancy occurs in
either of these two offices be
fore September 27, 1956 (40 days
before the General Election) an
election for the unexpired term
shall be held.
