Up-coming Board Elections (July 2009)

Up-coming Board Elections

Board members of the Ohio Deferred Compensation Board are also Board members of the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System Board (OPERS). So, when you vote for the OPERS Board, your vote counts twice, which makes it all the more important to vote.

This year's elections for three seats on the OPERS and Ohio Deferred Compensation Boards of Trustees will be held in September. Active county and miscellaneous employees, as well as retirees, will have the opportunity to take part in these elections.

  • Voting materials will be sent out on August 28, and must be received back by October 2. If only one candidate runs for a seat, no voting will be held for that election.

  • The election count will take place on October 5 and be certified by the Ohio Secretary of State's office. Those elected will serve a four-year term beginning in January 2010.

  • In 2010, additional elections will take place for active state, municipal, and non-teaching college and university employees, as well as a second retiree seat on the Board.
