BATAVIA, OH (Aug. 29, 2020) — If you are a resident or landowner in Clermont County, the Clermont Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) invites you to participate in the election for its Board of Supervisors.

The board guides the district and its staff in efforts to implement a number of programs that affect Clermont County residents. This includes a variety of agricultural conservation and urban stormwater management programs that help improve the quality of our streams, rivers and lakes. The district also provides assistance to landowners with drainage or erosion problems.

Two people will be elected to the board for three-year terms commencing Jan. 1. Candidates for the election include Dave Anspach, Scott Jennings and Tim Rose. Candidate biographies may be viewed at www.clermontswcd.org.

Absentee voting will start on Aug. 26. County residents and landowners can request absentee ballots by calling (513) 732-7075, completing a request form on the SWCD web site, sending an email to ssteffensen@clermontcountyohio.gov, or by stopping by the district’s walk-up window at the County Fairgrounds, 1000 Locust Street, Owensville. Ballots must be postmarked by Oct. 9 to be considered valid.

If a resident or landowner prefers to vote in person, Clermont SWCD will hold ‘Drive Thru’ polling Monday- Friday, Sept. 26-Oct. 9, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Voters should enter the County Fairgrounds from Locust Street. Once in the fairgrounds, signs will direct the voter to the polling location, where additional signs will be posted with the district’s phone number to call. Clermont SWCD staff will then bring the ballot to the voter.

There are special requirements for non-resident landowners and corporations. A notarized affidavit must be presented or on file prior to absentee ballot request. For more election and affidavit information, contact Clermont SWCD at (513) 732-7075 ext.2, or email ssteffensen@clermontcountyohio.gov.
