The county elections office will decide where to place vote centers and drop boxes based on 14 criteria outlined in state law. These include considering where the population lives, access to public transit and parking, how frequently a community votes by mail, and accessibility for people with disabilities. Additionally, they must consider which sites are available for up to 11 continuous days of voting. Community input is also important. Counties will want to hear from a wide variety of local residents to ensure every community has access to the polls.
