Election Information

The Voter Registration Department performs a wide variety of duties related to the election process. We are responsible for registering voters, keeping the voter registrations up-to-date, providing voting locations, recruiting poll workers for election day, maintaining and securing the voting machines, and providing election results once the election process is complete.

Our goal is to always provide accurate up-to-date information to voters as well as potential candidates who wish to run for office.

Our normal hours of operation can be found on our contact page.
