The county has been gearing up for election day by opening up election sites ahead of the big day, including the 39 vote centers that opened on Oct. 29 for 11 days. Voters can cast their ballot at any one of the vote centers in the county.

The hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Monday, Nov. 7. All locations will be open again on Election Day, Nov. 8, when voting hours change to 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Vote centers replace polling places and provide more services like Vote in-person or drop off a mail-in ballot, using an accessible ballot marking device, eceive assistance, and voting materials in multiple languages. 

Those who have not registered to vote may visit a voting center to register or update their voter registration and vote on the same day. 

When finished at the voting center, the voter will print out the official ballot with their selections. The voter can review the ballot and then give it to the poll worker to place it in the ballot box to be counted at the Registrar’s office. 

According to the county Registrar of Voters, the ballot marking device does not store, tabulate or count any votes.
