What we heard

You’ve given us positive feedback about online ballot options and advance voting opportunities such as the Vote Bus and Drive Through voting.  We can improve on administration of the election and the timely publication of election results, and have done Business Process Reviews to identify and correct issues to better serve you.  Specific feedback was also received from voters to lack of accessibility at some voting locations.

Accessibility, ease of voting, advance ballot opportunities and improved voting process and results are areas we’re working on improving.
