The Vinton County Elections Board has scheduled a series of weekly meetings on each Monday in May, each of them starting at 4 p.m. at the Vinton County Elections Office, located at 31935 State Route 93, McArthur.

The first of these meetings, set for Monday, May 3, at 4 p.m. will include an executive session concerning the “hiring of personnel”. The Board will also conduct reorganizational business in open session at this Monday’s meeting.

In recent meetings, the Board has been concentrating on hiring a new director and deputy director, which are the only full-time staff positions in the office. Those positions have been vacant since for Elections Director Lynn Herrold and former Deputy Director Rachel Stewart resigned simultaneously on March 8.
