    As part of Pima County’s ongoing effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of the public, voters are asked to wear masks when they go to vote at the polls on Election Day.

    Social distancing measures will be in place at polling places as well. Voters also are encouraged to maintain a six-foot social distance from one another while outside of polling places, especially when waiting in line to enter the voting areas.

    All polling places will be cleaned and sanitized prior to opening on Election Day and will be sanitized throughout the day. Hand sanitizer and masks will be available for the public at polling places.

    Elections workers will be able to assist voters who are unable to enter polling places as result of disability or illness, including COVID-19, by extending the opportunity to vote from their cars. For this option, poll workers wearing masks and gloves will come to the parking lots every 15 minutes to assist any voter who is unable to enter the polling place and  retrieve a voted early ballot or administer curbside voting in the voter’s car.

    These measures at the polling places will be taken in accordance with Arizona Department of Health Services and Pima County Health Department recommendations in order to help residents minimize their exposure to COVID-19 as much as possible.

    If voters experience any issues at polling places on Election Day they should call 724-6830.
