How Does the Voting Process Work?
When you enter the polling place, you will begin at a station where poll workers look up your name in a book to make sure you are registered to vote. You will be required to verbally state your name and current address (and party affiliation if it is a partisan primary). The poll worker will verify that you are registered to vote at the address stated.
After confirming this information, the poll worker will issue a form that you will take to a second station. At this station, you will exchange the form for a ballot. The ballot will contain contests that match the jurisdictions of your residence address.
You will carry your ballot to a voting booth and mark your choices by filling in bubbles with the ink pen provided. Poll workers will be available to assist you if you have questions.
After marking your ballot, you will place it into an optical scanner. The machine will read and count your choices, then it will store your ballot in a locked bin under the scanner.
What Times Are Polls Open?
Polls are open from 6:30AM - 7:30PM on election day.
