If you, or anyone you know, would like to be involved in the election process please contact our office or fill out an application found on our website page.  We have many different types of opportunities for you to be involved and earn a little extra cash as well.

Want to avoid going out in the cold and standing in line?  Request to be on our Permanent AV Ballot Application List.  What does this mean?  Prior to every election you will receive in the mail an application for an AV Ballot.  If you wish to receive a ballot by mail simply complete the application and return it and a ballot will be sent.,  If you want to vote in the polls for that election then simply do not return the application and show up at the polls on election day.

The Clerk's office will be open from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm the Saturday before each election (March 7th, August 1st and October 31st).
