Election officials will visit quarantined voters

| 06/04/2021

(CNS): Election Office teams, along with candidate agents, will go to the voters who will still be in quarantine and isolation on election day but have not applied to use the postal ballot service. The protocols to keep everyone safe and protect the integrity of the ballot have been agreed by Public Health and the Elections Office.

On the 10 and 11 April the teams, wearing full personal protective equipment, will visit around 13 voters who will be in isolation on voting day to enable them to take part in the voting process.

“The Elections Office and our Public Health partners are committed to ensuring those voters in quarantine who wish to vote in the General Election are able to do so in a manner that keeps voters, our staff and other residents safe while preserving the secrecy of the vote,” said Supervisor of Elections Wesley Howell.

“We are very pleased to have been able to find a suitable solution to this unique challenge and thank our partners for their support and guidance on this matter.”

Voters who believe they will be in quarantine on Election Day but still want to vote must apply for mobile polling using form C, before the end of office hours today, Tuesday. The form is available on the Elections Office website. The completed form can be emailed directly to the elections office office@elections.ky before 5pm.
