Overview

Polling Place Wait Times is a configuration of Collector for ArcGIS that can be used by poll workers to report expected wait times at their assigned polling place. Providing accurate wait times on election day helps voters determine the best time to vote and mitigates traffic spikes that typically occur at certain times of the day.

As wait times are reported by poll workers, they can be shared with citizens using your Election Polling Places application or accessed via a simple map embedded on the Clerk or Election Commission website. Empowering voters with this information will encourage participation and increase satisfaction during the voting process.
