Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Montgomery County election officials are asking for your help to make sure things run smoothly on election day this November.

The Montgomery County Board of Elections held a “mock election” open house Tuesday.

It was a chance for people to test out the county’s new voting equipment options.

“This is an exciting opportunity for our citizens to test out new voting equipment options and provide meaningful feedback in the decision making process,” said MCBOE Director Jan Kelly. 

The county is updating its voting equipment thanks to more than $4 million in state funds. The State of Ohio is distributing more than $114 million across all 88 counties to update voting equipment statewide before the 2020 presidential election.

Montgomery County election officials say it will cost nearly $8 million to update all voting equipment in the county.

The event ran from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Lower Level of the County Administration Building on W. Third Street in Dayton.
