Lunch & Learn: The History and Importance of Voting

Join us for the first in a series of Lunch and Learn programs.

With the presidential election right around the corner, we thought you may enjoy a program that teaches you a little something new about the history of voting and have the opportunity to hear from the Board of Elections.

Maybe you would like to get involved in the election process?

The Geauga County Board of Elections have great opportunites for students at the November 8, 2016 General Election. We want to encourage you to participate in this meaningful civic activity.

Students who meet the qualifications are encouraged to participate.  They must be United States citizens who are qualified electors in the county in which they plan to work as a PEO, must have no felony convictions, and may not be running as a candidate for the election in which they are working.

Benefits for college students to participate include:

  • Seeing democracy in action.
  • Having the opportunity to meet community leaders.
  • Earning a stipend while serving as a PEO.
  • Using the experience to fulfill classroom or community service requirements.
  • Adding the experience to employment applications.

For more information about participating in the election:  Deborah Reiter at


You may also go to the Ohio Secretary of State’s website or social media pages (OhioSOSHusted) for more information.

What's the presentation about?

  • A representative from the Ohio Secretary's office will present with Deborah Reiter from the Geauga Board of Elections.

This event will be broadcast to the Regional Academic Center.
