Sunnyside Worksource new polling site in Sunnyside

Voters will be able to cast their ballots at the Sunnyside Worksource on Tuesday, Nov. 4, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

This will be the first time a polling booth will be set up at the Worksource office. In the past the Yakima County Auditor has set up a booth at the Sunnyside Community Center, which is now closed.

Kris Cook, financial director at Worksource, said he was approached by the auditor's office about the use of their facility.

"We said why not," Cook explained. "It's an easily accessible location."

Lupe Camacho, program coordinator for the elections division in the auditor's office, said the site will be accessible to anyone with disabilities and those with language issues, such as a Spanish-only speaker.

"Federal law requires we offer bi-lingual services," she said.

Besides a polling booth, there will be a drop off box for voters to put their ballots in. This way people can save on the price of a stamp.
