How is the presiding judge chosen for a precinct?
Ohio Revised Code states, "The board shall designate one of the precinct election officials who is a member of the dominant political party to serve as a presiding judge, whose duty it is to deliver the returns of the election and all supplies to the office of the board." The dominant party is determined by the majority of votes cast in your precinct in the most recent gubenatorial election.
