The State Legislature has extended the absentee voting for the March 17th Primary through April 28th. Absentee ballot applications are available at the Geauga BOE Website. They need to be filled out, printed and signed and mailed back to the Geauga BOE. Anyone who did not already vote early needs to do this asap as the time to process and mail out the ballot is significant. Anyone who has questions or does not have access to a computer or printer please call or text 916-850-5230. The BOE will be taking phone calls to request ballots for those without printers but there are blank absentee ballot request forms at the headquarters and arrangements can be made for you to get one.

We are saddened to report the passing of our friend and brother, Rocco Defranco. Rocco was a loving husband, a proud father and a wonderful grandparent. Rocco was also a talented Chef who prepared food for our Party events with crowds as large as 200. Rocco was a strong Democrat with a long history as a community volunteer. Our thoughts and prayers are for his wife, Mary and family. Arrangements are complicated by the current "stay at home order" but will be announced here as soon as we become aware of them.
