How to Vote Safely at Your Local Polling Place

  • Write out your voting plan before going to the polls.
    Doing your candidate research ahead of time will ensure that you can get in and out of your polling place as quickly as possible. You can even download our list of endorsed candidates and bring it with you.

  • Vote during non-peak hours.
    Mornings, lunch breaks, and evenings will likely be the busiest times at most polling places. When planning your trip to the polls, try to avoid these high traffic times, if possible. 

  • Wear a face mask and bring your own hand sanitizer and pen.

  • Respect the social distancing markers at your polling location.
