News and Events
This year, the Kitsap County Auditor, Paul Andrews worked to open an additional in-person voting center, and extended operations from one day to three. An Accessible Voting Unit (AVU) is available at all three locations.
An AVU presents your ballot on a monitor. You select choices by touching the screen, using a select wheel, or by using a tool. You can use headphones to listen to the text and prompts on your ballot. Kitsap's machines are also fitted with sip-and- puff tools.
Hours and addresses are as follows:
July 17 - July 31
Saturday, August 1, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday, August 3, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, August 4, 7 a.m. - 8 p.m.
