The JCC is pleased to participate in the democratic process as an official polling place on election day.
Arriving to vote
All polling places, including the JCC, will be open from 6 am to 6 pm
When you arrive at the vote center, you’ll likely be greeted by volunteers politicking for their favorite candidate. Once you enter the polling place, no politicking should take place. It’s okay to bring literature from a volunteer with you into the polling place, but please do not leave it in the voting booth. You should take it with you when you leave.
Traditional Election Day Voting –

Checking in with the election workers
Once inside your vote center, tell the poll worker your name, and present your photo ID. Your identification must have your photo, your name, an expiration date, and be government issued. After the poll worker approves your ID, the poll worker will scan your ID using the Poll Pad, which is an electronic poll book that contains a database of every registered voter in Marion County. Every vote center will have multiple Poll Pads.
Using the ExpressVote Machine
All Election Day voting is performed using ExpressVote machines. When using the ExpressVote, a poll worker will provide you with a special ExpressVote ballot. The poll worker will initial the back of the ballot, which will have a clipped upper right-hand corner. The poll worker will insert the ballot into the ExpressVote machine and walk away. Touch the screen to make your selections and review your choices. When you’re finished voting, the ExpressVote will return a marked ballot to you to insert in the DS200 machine. The DS200 machine will confirm that your vote has been cast.
ExpressVote ADA Features
The ExpressVote machine has features to assist voters with disabilities, including an audio-enabled ballot for voters with low- or no vision. The device can be placed on a table at wheelchair level. Each machine also has an ADA-compliant table with three optional heights. Contact a poll worker if you need help with the machine.
