Yuma County looking to add vote centers

YUMA — Yuma could become the first county in the state to allow voters to cast ballots at voting centers. It may be a way of helping ease frustrations on election day.

County elections director Sue Reynolds tells the Yuma Sun it’s surprising how many people think they can vote at any precinct.

Each vote center will contain e-poll books which are electronic devices similar in size to the Ipad and contain each voter’s information and every type of ballot in the county, making it easier for poll workers to identify registered voters.

Currently, Yuma County has 38 polling sites spread over 42 precincts and residents are only allowed to vote at their designated site, leaving many residents confused on election day.
