COVID-19 UPDATE — Re: Election Day

As a friendly reminder, tomorrow, March 17, 2020, is Election Day. In the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, if you are planning on voting tomorrow at a polling location, we strongly suggest you take the following precautions, as outlined by Palm Beach County Supervisor of Election, Wendy Sartory Link.

  • Voters are encouraged to consider bringing their own stylus and black pen for voting, as well as to wash their hands with soap and water after voting.
  • In the event of lines, at the polling location, it is encouraged for voters to adhere to recommended “social distancing”.

Additionally, the following precautions will be taken at the polling locations.

  • Gloves, hand sanitizer, and sanitizing wipes will be available for poll workers at all polling locations.
  • Poll workers and staff have been directed to wear gloves, wipe down equipment frequently, to wash their hands thoroughly and often, and to stay home if they are sick.
  • Polling place clerks have also been directed to check with their team members and ensure no one works on Election Day who is sick or has been in a Level-3 location (China, Iran, S. Korea, Italy) in the last two weeks.
