Election COVID-19 Guidelines

To ensure the health and safety of Election Workers and in-person voters, the Elections Department has created health and safety guidelines for use in the 2020 State Primary Election on Tuesday, June 30.

These guidelines address the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), sanitizing work stations and commonly used areas/surfaces, social distancing, and more. Read through all the guidelines.

Ballots will begin being mailed to voters the week of June 8, and all ballot drop-box locations are open Monday, June 8.

To ensure safety, voters are strongly encouraged to return their completed ballots by dropping them off at a 24-hour drop box location or mailing them via USPS. For voters who’d prefer to vote in-person, our office strongly encourages wearing a mask or face covering to a Voter Service and Polling Center (VSPC), but it is not required.

Because of the new safety guidelines and adjustments in our process, it is possible the processing of ballots will continue days after Election Day. Returning your ballot prior to Election Day will help ensure speedy and regular results updates after 7 p.m. on Election Day.
