To protect the health and safety of poll workers and voters, a face mask that covers the mouth and nose is recommended while at the polls. Masks will be provided to those who arrive without one.
Hand sanitizer will be available for voters when entering the polling place.
While styluses and ball point pens will be provided for marking their ballot, voters are encouraged to bring their own.
Anyone concerned about contracting or spreading the coronavirus has the option to vote by absentee ballot.
Qualified voters who feel it is impossible or unreasonable for them to vote at their polling place are eligible to check the box on the absentee ballot application that applies to them individually. In the case none of the boxes apply, voters may check the box which reads “I have a physical illness or infirmity which prevents my attendance at the polls. (ID required)”
