According to a Huron County Board of Elections official, Norwalk school board candidate Janet Broz has yet to officially remove herself from the Nov. 5 ballot.
Sharon Locke, board of elections director, said Friday, though Broz did announce to the school board, audience and newspaper of her intention to remove her name from the ballot, she needs to also do so in writing by Nov. 4 -- the day before the election.
Locke said if Broz does not remove her name in writing, her votes will be counted on Election Day.
Broz, who is completing her fourth term and has been on the board for 16 years, cited "family priorities" as her reason when announcing her decision at the Oct. 7 school board meeting.
Broz would have been one of five candidates vying for three school board seats in the Nov. 5 ballot.
Incumbents Steve Linder and Robert Ludwig and challengers John Aschemeier and Kevin Cashen are the four remaining candidates.
The three candidates who are elected will join current board members Ralph Ritzenthaler and John Lendrum, who aren’t up for re-election this term.
