Vote Center Locations Needed

Polling Places Needed

Do you have a facility that could serve as a vote center?

  • Voting locations have been as varied as churches, community centers, private businesses, and schools.
  • You may donate your facility at no cost to taxpayers, or you may be compensated $100 per voting day for the use of your site.
  • We strive to use places that are accessible to all people, including those with specific needs. If you are not sure about vote center-accessibility for your site, we will send a survey team for evaluation.
  • Citizens like voting in their neighborhood. You are providing a valuable service to your neighbors by offering a convenient place to vote.
  • We will provide all the staff, booths, voting equipment, and other supplies needed to operate the vote center.
  • You may also be interested in being a poll worker.

There are minimum requirements. We need:

  • A room that is at least 30-feet x 30-feet in size.
  • Access to the site from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. three days prior to Election Day. In some cases, we may need access ten days prior to Election Day.
    • Voting hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on days prior to Election Day.

  • Access to restrooms for poll workers.
  • Access to multiple electrical outlets for voting equipment.
  • Appropriate interior lighting to accommodate worker and voter needs.

  • If the site is within a gated area, the gates must remain open during voting hours.
  • Although not required, if you are able to, please provide tables and chairs.

There are some restrictions:

  • The vote center may not be connected to any place that offers alcoholic drinks during the hours the vote center is open.
