April Smith Elections Supervisor
P.P.E./ Absentee Ballots/ Poll Workers
A.S: The date of the election has been moved to 6-9-20.
The State has given us a grant to provide P.P.E. (shield guards, gloves, and masks) to protect our poll workers as well as our most vulnerable.
The Secretary of State has mailed out absentee ballots to all active voters. Voters who have sent in their absentee ballot applications are now receiving their absentee ballots in the mail.
We have security cameras up in every voting precinct.
We have our poll workers in place, everyone is still on board. Everyone has completed the poll worker class but we will do a refresher for everybody.
A.F: Are you still going to use the high school students as poll workers?
A.S: Yes, we have trained a number of high school students and we still have them in place ready to go.
