To Vote Prior To The Election:
State Law requires the Clerk's Office to be open 9:00 am to 2:00 pm on the Saturday prior to an election.
To Vote, simply appear at your assigned polling place on election day. The polls are open from 7:00 am until 8:00 pm.
Voting Access for the Disabled:
Under the requirements of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), each polling location must have at least one voting unit designed to accommodate the needs of disabled voters by the 2006 election cycle. After an extensive evaluation process, the State of Michigan has selected the ES&S AutoMARK as its state-wide system. It is a ballot-marking device that allows voters with a variety of disabilities to vote using the same optical scan ballot and the same tabulator as other voters in the same precinct. These new voting machines will be available for use beginning with the August 2006 Primary election.
Voting Equipment Testing:
Public accuracy testing is required by the State. Dates will be posted as necessary.
Beginning with the 2006 election cycle, a state-wide optical scan voting system was implemented. After considering the various optical scan systems, Clinton County polling places will be using the Sequoia Voting Systems Optech Insight. Voters will notice very little difference between the old and new Optech machines.
