Christian County Clerk Kay Brown has released a letter to the community to address concerns related to safety from COVID-19 while voting.
Officials will be providing hand sanitizer at all locations, but while encouraging residents to wear a mask, will not be providing them.
Here is Brown’s letter:
Due to COVID-19, Christian County will be taking precautions for the safety of those in the polling places. Voters arriving at the polls will be greeted at the door with hand sanitizer. Voters are encouraged to take personal responsibility for their safety and may choose to wear a mask, but none will be provided by the County Clerk.
Due to social distancing, there will be limited capacity inside the polling, which may create a longer wait in line to vote. The peak time to vote is from 6:00 am to 9:00 am and 4:00pm to 7:00pm. To minimize the wait time, voters are encouraged to vote at a different time. At 7:00 p.m. voting ends and everyone that is in line at 7:00 p.m. will be able to vote on Election Day.
Voters that are unable to vote on Election Day or would like to vote early can vote at the County Clerk’s Office Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday May 30, 2020 from 8:00 a.m. to noon. Voters must call 582-4340, when they arrive at the historic courthouse so we can prepare the application and ballot for them to vote absentee.
I appreciate your understanding and patience during these awkward times.
