The elections department is a part of the County Auditor’s office. The Auditor’s Office handles all voter registrations for people who move into or within the county. The department administers the elections from nomination paper filing to preparation of the final abstract of votes including preparation of ballots, publication of the election, acquisition of polling locations and assignment of election workers, processing all absentee ballots, and counting the ballots by processing them though ballot readers and compiling the results.
During the 2017 Legislative Session, the Election Integrity Bill was passed that require specific identification forms at the polls, shortened the period for casting an absentee ballot, do away with straight party voting, and more.
