COLUMBUS – Secretary of State Jon Husted has appointed James S. Detling as a member of the Darke County Board of Elections. Detling will fill the unexpired term of Beverly Marker.
State law requires bipartisan representation on each of Ohio’s 88 county boards of elections. Each board is made up of two Republican members and two Democratic members, all of whom must be qualified electors in the counties for which they serve. The Secretary of State makes appointments to boards of elections based on the recommendations of the executive committees of the respective county political parties.
Detling was recommended by the Darke County Republican Executive Committee.
