COVID-19 Safety Measures at Polling Locations

For the health and safety of all voters, election workers and staff, the Kansas City Election Board has taken the following safety measures.

Each Polling Place will have an 8 ft. barrier at each of the voter check-in tables. Election workers will wear masks, face coverings for the duration of election day.

Hand sanitizer, alcohol wipes, Lysol wipes, Lysol spray, and anti-microbial spray will be used frequently to sanitize equipment and other hard surfaces.

Sterilized styli will be used for Poll Pad voter check-in and on Ballot Marking Devices. Single use pens and pencils will be used for voters voting on paper ballots.

School gymnasiums, Community Centers and cafeterias will be used to ensure proper social distancing of voters and election workers.
