Healthy Voting tips

Voting by mail is a healthy option because it lets you maintain physical distance and helps reduce crowding at in-person voting centers.

If you go out to vote - whether to drop off a ballot or vote in person - follow these common-sense precautions:

  • Wear a mask or other face covering.
  • Maintain a physical distance of 6 feet to protect yourself, election workers, and other voters.
  • Before and after voting, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

If you are sick or concerned that you have been exposed to the coronavirus, seek medical care. If you don’t have an absentee ballot, contact your local election office for guidance about your voting options.
