4117-5-07 Election eligibility lists.

(A) After the board directs an election, the employer shall file with the board and serve upon each party to the election an alphabetized, numbered election eligibility list containing the names and home addresses of all eligible voters. Unless otherwise directed by the board or with the consent of the parties, the eligibility list must be filed and served by the earlier of these two dates:

(1) Ten days after the board issues the direction of election; or

(2) Ten days prior to the commencement of the election.

(B) The board may require the employer to arrange the list in any manner that it deems appropriate.

(C) Failure to object, in writing, to the board to the form or content of the election eligibility list prior to the commencement of an election shall constitute a waiver of the objection if the objecting party knew of the defect prior to the election, or through the exercise of reasonable diligence should have known.

(D) At any time prior to or during the pre-election conference, or under special circumstances, prior to the counting of ballots the parties may jointly agree in writing to additions to or deletions from the eligibility list.

(E) If the employer fails to timely file a proper eligibility list, the board may, at its discretion, compile a list from any sources available to it.
