The Deschutes County Clerk announced that they will deploy some new 24-hour drop boxes for the May 17th election. "At the 2 libraries in La Pine and Redmond, we have converted from using the drive-by booths that had limited hours, to a 24-hour box.  They will open the same day that the booths did, the Friday before the election, but instead of having limited hours, they will be open 24 hours, so they'll be open until they close on election night at 8 p-m." There are several locations that already have 24 hour access: the County Building on Wall Street; the Deschutes County Road Department and Redmond and Sisters City Halls. Nancy Blankenship says money to purchase the boxes comes from the Help America Vote Act funds.  The HAVA was established in 2002 after the voting problems that were identified in the 2000 Presidential Election. The Act pays for county clerks to update voting equipment and provide education and access to all Americans so they can have the chance to vote.
