Sanyal Featured in Court News Ohio Story Titled “Attorneys Across Ohio Help Communities and Process on Election Day”

Attorneys & Professionals

Anna Sanyal, an associate in the Vorys Columbus office, was featured in a Court News Ohio story about attorneys who worked as poll workers during the 2020 General Election.

The story states:

“In July, Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor asked lawyers to act. Anticipating a significant decrease in poll workers because 61% of volunteers are 65 or older, and fall into a high-risk category for COVID-19, the Supreme Court issued an administrative order offering four hours of continuing legal education credit to any attorney – not including judges or magistrates – to serve as poll workers on Election Day.

‘I remember reading about it and immediately texting my lawyer friends. And I think a lot of us attorneys really took to heart what she said, and I appreciate her for saying it,’ said attorney and former Supreme Court employee Anna Sanyal.

Others in the legal profession also were inspired to receive that kind of encouragement from the state’s premier jurist. Court staff members who aren’t attorneys utilized their expertise and training to add their support to the voting process.”
