For the November 3 election, with few exceptions, we will be returning to the same polling places that were used for the November 2019 election. A few precincts have been identified as ones in which an election cannot or should not be held such as a senior living facility, while others have construction going on that will prohibit use.
Currently, the division is seeking new locations for those polling places and will work with the municipality and our Board of Elections to identify alternative locations. New polling locations must be ADA accessible and must be located in the voting precinct, or an adjacent precinct. The current list (September 17) of polling place locations is available:
All confirmed locations have been updated in the SURE system and voters are encouraged to use the polling place locator to verify their in-person polling location. Voters will receive mailings confirming their polling place prior to the November election. Press releases and other public announcements will be made regarding those locations moving forward.
Polling places open at 7 AM and close at 8 PM. Anyone in line at 8 PM will be allowed to vote.
Poll workers will be provided masks, gloves, face shields and hand sanitizer. Additionally, there will be plexi-glass at the sign-in tables. There will also be cleaning materials at the polling place, tape to mark off 6’ distances for voters waiting in line and extra staff to help enforce the provisions. Voters will be asked to wear a face covering in compliance with the state order. Those who arrive without a face covering will be offered one.
