Today was the third day of working with the Yolo County Election team getting the polling center initially setup and then processing voters through the center.
Friday night, November4th was about a four hour evening getting all the equipment setup, verifying the inventory, and documenting the various components and providing security stickers to ensure no fraudulent activity could be carried-out intentionally or inadvertently.
Saturday was the first full day of actually serving the public enabling them to vote either in person or providing a place for them to simply drop off their ballot that they had filled out at home.
There are various stations that poll workers occupy that perform distinct functions.
The first station is the Line Management Station. The person at this station greets the incoming voter and directs them where they need to go depending upon whether they are voting in person or there simply to drop off their completed ballot or to actually vote in a variety of ways.
If the person just wants to drop off a filled out ballot they are directed to the Ballot Drop Off Station. There are three ballots boxes there. One for the ballots that for Drop Off Only. The person assigned to that station will verify that the ballot envelope has been properly signed and dated and instruct them to place the envelope in the Blue receiving ballot box.
If the person wants to fill out a ballot at the polling station then they are directed to the ePollbook Station for further processing. At tis station they will be asked to provide some means of looking them up in the system.
