You wake up and realize it’s Nov. 3 — Election Day — and you need in-person assistance to vote before the polls close at 7 p.m.  It’s good to know that there are 20 Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPC) in Douglas County open to assist you, and one may be as close as your nearby high school campus.

Please visit a VSPC if you need to register to vote, update your voter registration, replace a ballot, vote in person or use an ADA-accessible voting machine. If you’re ready to drop off your voted ballot and do not need staff assistance on Election Day, simply deliver your ballot to one of the 20 convenient ballot drop boxes located throughout Douglas County by 7 p.m.

On Election Day, Nov. 3, a total of 20 VSPC locations will operate from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. including nine Douglas County high schools, designated as Voter Service and Polling Centers through a cooperative agreement with the Douglas County School District. Find a VSPC and see wait times for all locations on DouglasVotes.com – wait times are updated hourly.

Each VSPC has designated ADA parking and is equipped with an ADA accessible voting machine and voting booth. Voters with sight impairments have the option to listen to an audio ballot. Those who require additional forms of assistance may bring a person of their choosing to help them in marking their ballot or request assistance from an election judge at the VSPC.

Health and safety measures are in place to make voting in-person as safe as possible for both voters and election personnel. Please check DouglasVotes.com before visiting a VSPC to confirm availability as some services may be limited or unavailable at certain locations due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency.

Be aware of the 7 p.m. Election Day ballot deadline. Your ballot must be received by mail, placed in a designated ballot drop box, or you must be in line at a ballot drop box or VSPC location no later than the close of polls at 7 p.m. on Election Day, Nov.3, for you ballot to count. A postmark of Nov. 3 is not valid as the received date.
