New Voting Machines

We now have new voting machines in Clay County. These machines provide Voter-Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) technology to ensure security and transparency in the voting process. Like our previous machines, there is no wi-fi or satellite connections. The paper record is always secured in a locked and sealed enclosure. It isn’t handled by numerous people, numerous times. It is an auditable paper record. If you are interested in viewing the new machine, we have a demo set up in the office with a temporary ballot that you can actually use and go through the voting process. We are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Requests for an absentee ballot application are now being filled. We will accept requests until February 27th, 2024. Waiting until this deadline will not guarantee that your ballot will be mailed and received in our office on March 5th, 2024. We suggest requests be made well before this date.
