What safety precautions regarding Corona virus will be taken at the Adult Center on Rosser Street, especially for the elderly ( I am age 85) if I were to vote in person there? A family member who lives in another state told me that he will vote in person to be certain his vote will be safe. Yet he knows my personal situation might not make that possible for me to do.
I do have an early ballot I can drop in the VOTE box on Fair Street, but I am concerned for the safety of my vote when retrieved from that box and taken inside the building. Also, is it possible for a thief to retrieve a ballot from that box?
In other words, what would be the safest way for me to vote – for my own health and for the security of my vote? (Maybe I am simply way too paranoid!)
I already submitted my comment and question.
