Tips for Voters to Reduce Spread of COVID-19
There are steps you can take to help you vote and minimize your risk during the COVID-19 pandemic. The more prepared you are, the less time you may have to spend at the voting site. When voting, you can protect yourself and others if you:

avoid close contact: try to stay at least 6 feet apart of other people, especially those not wearing a mask
wear a mask around others
take care when touching surfaces and wash your hands often or, if not possible, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
