“Safety precautions will be in place at the polls,” said Pamela Powell, director of Voter Registration and Elections.
“Voters are urged to wear a mask in order to protect themselves, other voters and poll workers from any potential spread of COVID-19. Remember, many of our dedicated poll workers are part of the high-risk group for this awful virus,” Powell said. “Hand sanitizer will be available at each polling place. If they wish, voters may bring their own pens to sign the poll books and complete their ballots. Black or blue ballpoint pens are preferred. Some pens will be provided and cleaned between uses.”
Powell added that voters will be asked to follow social distancing guidelines and maintain six feet of space.
Mail and absentee voters are not eligible to vote at the polls on June 2, except by provisional ballot. Absentee and mail-in ballots must be received by the Board of Elections Office at the Mifflin County Courthouse no later than 8 p.m. Tuesday.
