Former Lorain official changes address for voting

SHEFFIELD TWP. — Lorain County Community Action Agency Director Robert Gilchrist changed the address he is registered to vote at to his Fields Way home today, according to the Lorain County Board of Elections.

The change in registration eliminates the need for a hearing that had been scheduled before the board at 4 p.m. today so the board could make a determination where Gilchrist should vote in November.

Elections board Director Paul Adams said the board is still investigating whether Gilchrist improperly cast ballots in four previous elections in Lorain’s 2nd Ward.

The Fields Way home he bought in August 2009 is in the city’s 8th Ward.

Denise Cafuloff of Lorain formally challenged whether Gilchrist, who until last week was the Lorain Service Director, last month.
