The Bureau of Elections Mission:
The BOE protects the fundamental right of citizens to vote by maintaining the integrity of the election process.
What we do:
The Bureau of Elections is in charge of general information regarding voting, including community outreach and education, voter registration, early and absentee voting, all election scheduling, legal publicizing and administration, precinct polling site allocation and localization, as well as poll worker recruitment and training.
We are also a public information bank providing information such as precinct maps and contact information for elected officials. We support municipalities with conducting their elections by programming and providing voting machines as well as providing the official list of eligible voters.
The Bureau of Elections is responsible for ensuring compliance with state mandated requirements and regulations that pertain to elections and equipment required at the polling place.
The Bureau of Elections ensures that all qualified voters have an opportunity to vote free of intimidation and obstruction.
We believe in democracy and the importance of majority rule and individual rights.
We believe in being transparent and handling the election process with integrity to ensure the public can trust the results.
We believe customer service is critical to the success of elections because it strengthens public confidence in the election process.
