For those who need in-person voter assistance, four VSPC locations open across Douglas County on Oct. 30. Visit a VSPC of your choice to register to vote or update your voter registration, replace a ballot, drop off your voted ballot, vote in person, or use an ADA-accessible voting machine, until 7 p.m. on Election Day.
