ELECTION BOARD TROUBLES
Hearing set for Ohio county election board members facing removal by state official

Top election officials in one northern Ohio county will get a chance to make a case for keeping their jobs.
Secretary of State Jon Husted wants to remove them because he says the board has been plagued by dysfunction.
The deputy director decided Wednesday to resign.
Husted has scheduled a hearing Thursday morning in Toledo, where the board members and the director will be allowed to argue to keep their jobs.
The board has experienced several years of infighting and accusations of wrongdoing. A series of missteps and squabbling earlier this month delayed voting results for hours in the primary election.
