We renovated the booth for 2018 with a color change to match the "Blue Wave" theme. We had a "ribbon cutting" which made the paper.
Volunteers were in place when the doors opened at 10 AM Saturday despite the rain.
Diana Colavecchio, our candidate for judge, 9th District Court of Appeals, came that day to meet the voters.
State Senate candidate Adam VanHo and family enjoyed the fair.
Surveying the old look and preparing to repaint. The booth had been the same for 11 years.
The 2018 fair will long be remembered as the year the animals had to be relocated because of the threat of flash flooding. It rained steadily Saturday and Sunday. The tractor pull was canceled as was the Sunday night entertainment and most events that day. But Susan Moran Palmer still came to meet Wayne County voters.
Linda, a veteran volunteer, Lee, our ODP organizer, and Lyn, chair of the fair booth committee, registered voters, provided voting information and distributed campaign literature.

Central Committee members and volunteers, as well as several students from the College of Wooster Democrats, staffed the booth.
Kevin Barnet and Rodney Mackey, candidates, with Jon Ulbright and Bill Bostancic, former and present members of Wooster City Council.

One shift of volunteers ready to help voters.
The Sheriff answered questions about the proposed jail expansion from our local candidates.
Every shift had numerous visitors seeking information and voicing support for change.
Some booth volunteers were longtime veterans, while others had little experience - but all enjoyed talking with our visitors.
Thanks, Lyn and the Fair Booth Committee, and all the volunteers, for your hard work, and the successful outreach to voters at the 2018 Wayne County Fair!
