Effective Friday, March 20, 2020, One Government Center will be implementing the following protocols in compliance with recommendations of Governor Mike DeWine:

  • Access to the building will be limited to employees and members of the public with pre-arranged appointments.

  • Revolving and sliding doors will be locked and access will be granted to employees through use of their badge on the proximity reader at each door.

  • Building management requests that all building tenants pre-arrange visitors and direct visitors to enter the building through the main entrance on Jackson Street, where they will need to ring the intercom to discuss access with the front desk.

  • All individuals entering the building will have their temperature taken. Access will be denied to anyone with a temperature reading exceeding 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Employees who are denied access may call their office and arrange for their work materials or other necessary items. They will not be allowed to enter the building.

Due to the limited public access to One Government Center, effective Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 Board of Elections will have a drop box located near the front entrance of One Government Center on Jackson.

All Elections related paperwork with the exception of Candidate Petitions may be placed in the drop box to be processed. Candidate Petitions must be submitted at the Board of Elections Office.

Receipts will be mailed for filings to the DOT (Designation of Treasurer) address on file.
