COVID-19 Election Preparations
Published on Tue, 07/21/2020 - 12:13
|Early Voting||August 3 - 16, 9 a.m. - 7 p.m.|
|Deadline to request a vote-by-mail ballot be mailed to you||5 p.m., August 8|
|Election Day||August 18, 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.|
You can choose from three convenient ways to vote:
- By mail
- On Election Day
If you are concerned about voting in person, you can request a vote-by-mail ballot. Anyone can request a vote-by-mail ballot, and you do not have to provide a reason for requesting it. Visit our Vote-By-Mail page for more information.
You can vote at whichever of the 18 early voting locations is most convenient for you. On Election Day, however, you must vote at your assigned polling place. Your assigned polling place is based on your address, so make sure your address is up-to-date.
All early voting sites and polling places will be provided with COVID-19 supplies which include:
- Plexiglass shields at check-in stations
- Hand sanitizer
- Disinfectant spray
With these supplies, poll workers will regularly sanitize the check-in area, voting booths, ExpressVote, and tabulator.
We encourage you 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.
We are doing our best to ensure that all voters and poll workers feel safe during this election. If you have any questions, please contact us.
