Others Present: Janine Eveler, Brenda Jemison, Beau Gunn, Gerry Miller, Gregg Litchfield, Chairman Daniell called the meeting to order at 4:02 p.m.
Director Eveler explained that this special meeting was called to discuss the impacts of the COVID 19 pandemic on election preparations. Due to the speed at which conditions have been changing during the last few days, a face-to-face meeting was deemed necessary to better inform the Board.
Ms. Brooks made a motion that the Board will honor its commitment to open all Advance Voting locations as currently planned, but if any location is deemed to be unsafe by Cobb County or Georgia Department of Public Health, Director Eveler has the authority to close that location, and if staffing shortages increase to the point that we can no longer provide secure and expedient service at all locations, Ms. Eveler has the authority to consolidate staff into a smaller number of locations. Ms. Eveler has authority to take immediate action, unless circumstances are such that there is time to call a special Board meeting with the required 24 hours’ notice so that the Board can determine the action to be taken. Mr. Aiken SECONDED. APPROVED 5-0
