covid-19 polling place action plan
As we navigate through these difficult times, we would like to put voters’ minds at ease regarding upcoming elections in Midland County. Our facilities crew has been hard at work building sneeze guards that will be used at each vote center to protect voters and workers during the check-in process. The pens used during the check-in process will be cleaned using alcohol wipes between every voter. Masks and gloves will be worn by election workers every day of Early Voting and Election Day. Lysol disinfectant spray, hand sanitizer and alcohol for cleaning voting equipment will also be used. Voting machines will be spaced 6 feet apart and cleaned with alcohol before each voter touches the machine to cast their vote. Election officials will mark waiting distances at 6 feet apart. Because hand sanitizer can ruin paper ballots, voters will be encouraged to use sanitizer on their way out of the vote center. We hope all these measures being put in place will help Midland voters and election workers feel safe as we navigate this new normal.
