Tangeman Featured in Court News Ohio Story Titled “Lawyer ‘Steps Up’ to Work Election Day Polls”
Jill Tangeman, a partner in the Vorys Columbus office, was recently featured in a Court News Ohio series about lawyers serving as poll workers for the 2020 General Election.
The story states:
“There are times in life when people inevitably follow in their family’s footsteps. For one central Ohio attorney, it happened because of a pandemic.
Just like her grandparents decades ago, Jill Tangeman, a lawyer from Delaware, Ohio, will serve as a poll worker on Election Day prompted by an Ohio Supreme Court initiative.
‘Knowing that it is a unique time, and a lot of our normal poll workers are elderly, I certainly understand and don’t want them to put themselves at risk,’ Tangeman said.
Expecting a shortage of election officials over concerns due to COVID-19, the Supreme Court enacted an order allowing attorneys to receive education credit in exchange for poll work.
As a 22-year veteran of the legal profession, Tangeman specializes in real estate law. But she feels the acumen and skills necessary for an attorney – no matter the discipline – are universal to assist voters and the voting process.”
