Elections/Voter Registration

If a city or county elections official specifically requests the use of a school building as a polling place, the Board shall allow its use for such purpose. The Board may authorize the use of school buildings as polling places on any election day, and may also authorize the use of school buildings, without cost, for the storage of voting machines and other vote-tabulating devices. If school sessions will continue, the Board shall identify to elections officials the specific areas of the school buildings not occupied by school activities that will be allowed for use as polling places. (Elections Code 12283)

(cf. 6111 - School Calendar)

When a school is used as a polling place, the Superintendent or designee shall provide the elections official a site with an adequate amount of space that will allow the precinct board to perform its duties in a manner that will not impede, interfere or interrupt the normal process of voting, and shall make a telephone line for Internet access available for use by local elections officials if so requested. He/she shall make a reasonable effort to ensure that the site is accessible to disabled persons. (Elections Code 12283)

(cf. 0410 - Nondiscrimination in District Programs and Activities)

To encourage students to participate in the elections process when they are eligible, the Superintendent or designee may distribute to high school seniors voter registration forms provided by the Secretary of State. He/she shall determine the most effective means of distributing the forms, which may include but not be limited to distributing forms at the start of the school year, with orientation materials, at central locations, and/or with graduation materials.
