New kiosks to increase accessibility to voter information

Posted

Anythink has partnered with Adams County Elections to provide increased voting information and registration services at its libraries.

Anythink’s three largest branches - Brighton, Huron Street and Wright Farms - now have designated voter registration kiosks, where community members can register to vote or update their voter registration online or by paper form.

All of Anythink’s libraries will have voter information, forms in English and Spanish, and mailer envelopes provided by Adams County Elections.

Anythink staff, trained by Adams County Elections, will be able to provide assistance as requested.

“Exercising your right to vote is one of the greatest privileges a person can have, and the elections department is thrilled to partner with Anythink to promote voter registration at their locations,” Adams County Clerk & Recorder Josh Zygielbaum said in a news release.

So far in 2019, 278,693 residents are registered to vote in Adams County - about half of the county’s population. Partnerships like the one between Adams County Elections and Anythink allow for increased accessibility for voter information and a more engaged civic community, the release said. 

“Libraries are a vital part of the greater social fabric,” Anythink Director Pam Sandlian Smith said in the release. “Making voter registration accessible at our Anythink libraries is another important step in building a civically engaged community.”
