Roger,
I don't think you have voles in your area but you may be seeing moles or pocket gophers. Your options are to fence them out with a fence that extends down into the soil or to trap or poison them. The fencing option is no simple task and requires trenching to install the base of the mesh wire down into the soil. The following web site offers helpful information on controlling moles in your area:
