“The decision to reduce the number of locations to open for the Primary Election was made due to the number of election workers we were able to recruit, along with the concern of procuring PPE for the sites,” said Brown. She added, “We have selected locations in the county where no vote should have to drive more than 25 minutes to vote.”

Brown said, “there will be hand sanitizer available for voters to use before they proceed through the check-in process. We are providing acrylic panels to provide a health safety barrier between our precinct officials and voters – for the public’s safety and that of our precinct officials. Voters will be able to scan their ID under the scanner for a more efficient check-in, and then hold their ID up in front of the panel for the precinct official to view the ID. In addition, we will be offering hand sanitizer, gloves, and masks to our precinct officials for their use on election day. Voters can expect to see social distancing markers in the polling place and a marking pen for each voter to keep.”
