On May 25, 1868, the Village of Grove City approved an ordinance to make sure notification of elections were made.  The burden of notifying residents of an election fell on the shoulders of the mayor and should the mayor fail to give such notice the mayor was subject to a fine of $50.  If such a fine is assessed, the fine was to be applied by the council for the use of the corporation.  That responsibility now falls on the shoulders of the Franklin County Board of Elections.
