We have added a “Clerk” tab to the Red Willow County’s GIS website: redwillow.gworks.com.  If you click on that and open “Layers” on the far left, you can explore voting districts, subdivisions, commissioner districts, etc.  Take a look!



Not all of the races or candidates listed will appear on all ballots in the county, in the manner posted, as some candidates are elected only by district and some candidate races require rotation.

The courthouse is now a polling place for early voters. Registered voters may vote at the County Clerk's Office anytime during office hours from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. through the day prior to election day.

There shall be no campaigning within 200 feet of the courthouse during this time, and all signs found to be in violation will be removed by the County Clerk.
