The City Clerk may establish early voting facilities throughout the election jurisdictions where any registered voter may go to cast a ballot during a period established by ordinance for early voting.
(a) Early voting will be located at facilities throughout the election jurisdiction and staffed by persons designated and/or employed by the City Clerk that are properly trained on the voter registration record system and the voting equipment to ensure that any registered voter will be able to vote for those candidates and measures that the voter is entitled to vote for.
(b) The voting equipment will be set up to include all the ballot groups that will be considered during the election in those languages that are required to be available at the election.
The City Clerk will give notice of the availability of the Early Voting program by including information on Early Voting on the City Clerk’s Election Web Site, in the Official Sample Ballot and Voter Information Pamphlet and by issuing a press release not later than 14 days prior to opening the satellite offices for voting. The following information, at a minimum, will be included on the Web Site, in the Pamphlet and in the Press Release:
(a) The locations of the satellite offices.
(b) The hours of operation when voting can take place at each location.
(c) The dates during which early voting can be utilized by the voters.
(d) A telephone number and web site where voters can obtain information about early voting and the locations and hours of operation of the satellite offices.
The City Clerk shall keep a record of any voter casting a ballot through the early voting program. Before the election, the City Clerk shall send to the Inspector of each precinct in the election jurisdiction the names of the voters in that precinct that cast a ballot through the early voting program under the provisions of this Chapter. The Inspector shall indicate the names of the early voters on the Roster of Registered Voters supplied to each polling place.
Challenges to an Early Voter’s entitlement to vote must be made at the early voting location at the time the Early Voter seeks to vote. Any challenge to an Early Voter will be governed by the provisions of Chapter IX of this Code.
