COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES

The OCSE has been putting extra COVID-19 safety measures in place for those who will be voting in person including all early voting sites and polling places will have:

  • Plexiglass shields at check-in stations
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Wipes
  • Disinfectant spray

With these supplies, poll workers will regularly sanitize the check-in area, voting booths, ExpressVote, and tabulator.

OCSE encourages voters to bring your own protective supplies (mask, gloves, hand sanitizer, etc.) and bring your own blue or black pen to mark your ballot.

Poll workers will mark 6-foot intervals outside and inside the early voting sites and polling places to help maintain social distancing. Voting booths will be spread out, and all have plastic screens around 3 of the 4 sides of the tabletop.

Pens will be at the check-in stations to be handed to you if you do not have your own pen. If you take a pen, you will be asked to return it to a box at the tabulator so it can be sanitized before being given to the next voter. Tissue will be available at the check-in stations for you to handle the stylus to sign the check-in tablet, or the pen to mark your ballot.

OCSE wants to ensure that all voters and poll workers feel safe during this election. If you have any questions you can contact them here.

  1. I tried to post, but I guess it did not go through. We voted today, and wore our gloves and masks. We were not too worried about covid, as there were only three other voters, and they entered the other precinct at the front of the church, and our precinct was in the back. I can’t wait for the general election to vote against Mr. Big Stuff!!! I do worry about getting covid though, because I won’t have health insurance until Dec. 1. I have already received my Medicare card, but it won’t kick in until Dec.1st.
