Become a County Lead

What is a County Lead?
A County Lead facilitates the Ohio Precinct Strategy (OPS) in an Ohio County. An OPS County Lead is not a title, it is an active role. There is only one County Lead per county (there may be co-Leads that work with the Lead).

County Leads:
• Create and lead a group of citizens to engage in the election process
• Run campaigns and assist citizens to become County Central Committee members
• Seek to work with and assist their Board of Elections
• Educate their group on Ohio Elections
• Coordinate and prepare their group to work and watch over their elections
• Coordinate and network with other County Leads
