We have an AVS inventory form at the SOS table in the back of the room. You can complete the inventory form as you set up the AVS for the election. We are asking you to tape it or put it in a sleeve and affix it to the bin cover for future reference.
Any polling place inspections conducted by the Office of the Attorney General will include a compliance check.
Inspections will also include compliance with the polling place accessibility guidelines for parking, route of travel, entrances, signage and the accessible voting system.
