About Us

The Board of Elections staff works year-round to prepare and conduct national, state, county, and municipal elections, in addition to special referendums. We use a paper based voting system with DS200s for tabulating the results.  Voters simply vote by filling in bubbles on the ballot and placing the ballot into the tabulator.

 We have many duties when we aren't conducting an election. Those duties include registering new voters; keeping voter registrations updated by removing deceased voters, felons, and voters who have moved from the county; keeping up with changes in election laws and regulations; and maintaining and filing reports for candidates.
