Each of Ohio's 88 counties has a Board of Elections (BOE) office that is responsible for administering local elections. A four-person board governs each BOE; composed of two members from each major political party. Board members serve for staggered terms of four years. All petitions for local, legislative, and congressional district offices are filed at Boards of Elections as well as petitions for local issues and options. Campaign finance reports for local candidates, political parties, and political action committees are also filed at BOEs.
