What is a Board of Elections?

A board of elections is a government body tasked with overseeing elections at the local, county, state and federal levels. However, they're usually organized at the county level. They may also be responsible for school board elections. A board of elections works closely with the local board of registrars or county registrar of voters. These organizations work to ensure that elections are orderly and voting results are accurate.

The board of elections organizes and manages elections in local communities. They are charged with supervising elections at each voting precinct. Elections departments include commissioners and supervisors who keep the voting process fair and democratic. The board of elections provides voter registration so that eligible voters may vote. It's responsible for primary elections, regular elections, and absentee voting.
