Become a Polling Place

If your facility is interested in becoming a polling place to be used for voting on Election Day, the Sarasota County elections office would like to hear from you. To be able to accommodate the voting process, a facility:

  • must be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and all ramps and railings must meet the state code for conformity.
  • must have ample parking and clear entry into and exit from the facility‚Äôs parking lot to the street.
  • must be able to accept some of the voting equipment up to a week before Election Day and should be able to securely store it.
  • must be available from 6a.m. until 9p.m. on Election Day. It is also suggested that poll workers have access to the facility the night before Election Day for set up.
