Health and Safety Concerns at the Polls
“If you have health concerns due to COVID-19, Vote-by-Mail is your best option. I strongly recommend that voters protect themselves and others by following the CDC COVID-19 guidelines for the upcoming elections.”Supervisor Walker stated.
“At the polls, wear a face mask, stay 6 feet apart in line, and wash your hands frequently. Please be patient at the polls, as social distancing may cause longer lines. In addition, voters may wear gloves or bring their own black ballpoint pen (markers are not allowed) as additional safety precautions.
“Don’t wait until the last minute, if you’re not already registered to vote, register now. If you haven’t requested a Vote By Mail ballot, do it now. If you prefer to vote in person, plan to go during Early Voting.To vote by mail, change your address, or questions regarding voting, please call (772) 462-1500 or visit www.slcelections.com.”
