Selecting Polling Places
The following criteria are always considered; however, not always obtainable:
- Availability - Permission from property owner, Limited cost to the tax payers
- Capacity - Size of the room being used, Access to voting area, Parking
- Proximity - Location within reason
Assigning Polling Places
The number of registered voters in a precinct/voting area determines the assignment of an approved polling place that will accommodate the voters based on its capacity and proximity to the area.
Voter turnout fluctuates based on the type of election:
- Small elections require fewer polling places. Therefore, we consolidate voting areas to reduce the cost to tax payers.
- Countywide elections require more polling places.
- Presidential elections require the most polling places in order to accommodate the increased number of voters.
