The LWVCC is a partner in the Safe Vote Coalition begun by County Clerk Aaron Ammons and Public Health Administrator Julie Pryde. The Coalition's purpose is to share information about how to vote safely this November. Below are some recent updates from the Safe Vote Coalition.
1. The safest option is voting by mail using the postal service or drop boxes. Next safest option is early voting--best option if you're voting in person. Lines are shorter, available more days and times. Least safe option is election day voting--lines will likely be longer, more time spent at the polling place.
2. If you do vote in person, please wear a mask. All polling locations will be equipped with hand sanitizer, wipes and disinfectants, and masks for voters who forgot them. Early voting locations will have plexiglass partitions because election judges will be working multiple days.
3. Champaign County was featured in Time magazine article about the use of drop boxes for mail ballots:https://time.com/5881310/ballot-drop-boxes-usps/
