Wanted: Cuyahoga County Board of Elections Members

CLEVELAND (AP) - The search is on for four people to be on the elections board in northeast Ohio's Cuyahoga County. The pay isn't high, but the public scrutiny is. On the line is the integrity of the voting process for more than one (m) million people.

Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner is interviewing candidates for the board after she forced the former members to resign, citing poorly run elections in past years and the convictions of two election workers. The last holdout, Ohio Republican Party chairman Robert Bennett, resigned Wednesday.

Brunner says she is trying to find a group of people who can work well together to do what needs to be done to get the board on track.

The new board members must immediately face some major
decisions, including the hiring of a new director and deputy
