On Election Day, you will check-in with a poll worker. You will then be given a paper ballot and taken to a privacy booth to vote.

Bubble in your votes by filling in the ovals next to your choices. Afterwards, insert the paper ballot into the optical scan unit, which scans the ballot to cast your vote. The optical scan unit is user-friendly, and will allow you to redo your ballot if you have a blank ballot or if you voted too many times in one or more of the contests on the ballot.

ADA touchscreen units are available for people with disabilities.
