Weinewuth Featured in Court News Ohio Story Titled “Professional 'Duty' Prompts Attorney to Supreme Court Poll Worker Program”

Attorneys & Professionals

Beth Weinewuth, a partner in the Vorys Cincinnati office, was recently featured in a Court News Ohio series about lawyers serving as poll workers for the 2020 General Election. 

The story states:

“For attorneys, their profession is one of purpose, for themselves and society. This election season, those legal principles will be on display as more lawyers work at the polls.

‘I really think that the skills that lawyers have, and the professional responsibility and oath that they take, lends itself perfectly to serving as an election official,’ said Beth Weinewuth, a Cincinnati-based attorney, who has signed up to be a poll worker.

Sensing the potential shortfall for the 35,000 volunteers needed to handle voting due to COVID-19, Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor felt the state’s approximately 44,000 licensed attorneys could play a pivotal role when the program was unveiled in July.”
