DURING ELECTION DAY: Other Contingency Measures

  • Encourage Election Officers to wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after setup of the polling place and before and after meals.
  • Encourage your fellow Election Officers to take breaks throughout the day. If they take a break outside the voting room, they may remove their face covering and gloves.
  • Discourage Election Officers from sharing food or any other materials, such as books or magazines, that could spread germs.
  • Ensure you or another Election Officer sanitizes voting surfaces, tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, and other frequently touched surfaces throughout the day.
