Duval County Supervisor of Elections told Action News Jax:
- They will be keeping voters and Poll Workers safe by following CDC protocols just like we did during March election.
- All workers will be pre-screened on election day - have their temperature taken and asked a series of questions to make sure they are fine and ready for work.
- The Supervisor of Elections has hired an extra worker for every precinct and Early Voting site whose job will be to sanitize and clean all contact surfaces including the booths.
- There are currently 4 sites that are being used for COVID-19 testing and for voting:
Hogan says he, as well as his staff, have already met on site with the City’s EOC office and testing officials at the two sites; Legends and Oceanway Community Centers, to coordinate the access for the voters and those citizens who are visiting the site to be tested.
