What are election officials doing to protect voters and poll managers at polling places?

The SEC and county election officials are taking steps to make polling places as safe as possible for voters and poll managers:

  • Managers will receive special training on sanitizing surfaces and applying social distancing concepts.
  • Managers will be equipped with masks, face shields and gloves. 
  • Managers will be provided with sanitizing wipes and will regularly clean common surfaces throughout the day. 
  • Check-in stations and voting equipment will be spaced to keep voters and managers at least six feet apart. 
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided for voters and managers.
  • Voters will be provided with a cotton swab for making selections on the touchscreen.
  • Voters are asked to wear their own mask if they have one and to bring their own pen for signing the poll list.
