School Board Decision Could Displace Voters

Sep 21, 2015

SPRINGBORO, Ohio (AP) — A Springboro school board has planned a vote to raze a former school building where more than 5,000 people vote.

 

The Dayton Daily News reports the board is expected to decide Tuesday evening on the former Jonathan Wright School building, which now houses the Living Waters Lutheran Church and Springboro Community Action Center.

 

If the building is demolished, the election on Nov. 3 would be the last time voters from seven precincts could cast their ballots at the former school.

 

Warren County Board of Elections Director Brian Sleeth says the decision to tear down the school spoiled the election board's consolidation of the precincts, which started last November. About 5,600 voters are registered from the precincts. He says his office is close to picking new locations.
