Before you go out to vote in the 2020 Primary, make sure you take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the coronavirus. The equipment in the voting place has several points of contact including the plastic voter card inserted in the new voting machine to start the electronic ballot; the touchscreen; and the pens used to sign in. Here are some suggestions voters can take:
- bring your own BLACK ballpoint pen to sign in
- bring a pencil with an eraser or rubber-typed stylus to use on the touchscreen.
- ask a judge to insert the plastic voter card into the voting machine for you to minimize exposure
- wash your hands as soon as you leave the polling place
- vote by mail or vote early.
Stay healthy out there!
