The write-in ballots for Beavercreek Township Trustee will have to wait for a decision until at least November 19 according to the Greene County Board of Elections.
“While unofficial votes for certified candidates and for questions and issues that appear on the ballot are counted on election night the Board will not know who each write-in vote was cast for until a careful review following election day,” said Llyn McCoy, Director of the Greene County Board of Elections. “The Board of Elections will use the 11 days after the election to review all ballots which contain write-in votes to make certain that only write-in votes are counted for those who filed a valid declaration of intent to be a write-in candidate.”
The Beavercreek News-Current and Greene County Dailies will update this story as official results become available.
