Three Board seats up for election

OPERS will hold elections in 2021 for three Board seats: one retiree seat, and the county employees and miscellaneous employees seats.

The seats are for four-year terms that will begin Jan. 1, 2022. The trustees adopted an election schedule at the March meeting, which includes:

  • June 1: Formal notice of election postcards mailed to retirees, and formal notice of election posters, petitions and forms mailed to employers, and petitions and forms made available upon request
  • Aug. 2, 4:30 p.m. EDT: Last day for OPERS to receive petitions, forms and biographical statements
  • Aug. 18: OPERS Board certifies slate of candidates
  • Aug. 24: Voting materials mailed to qualified voters at home address of record
  • Oct. 1: Last day to receive votes
  • Oct. 4: Ohio Secretary of State representative verifies election results
  • Oct. 20: OPERS Board certifies election results

The three seats combined contain almost 313,000 members and retirees eligible to vote. Members and retirees may vote only for the candidates from their representative group.
