Election officials are also putting in place health and safety protocols for in-person voting amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“All poll workers will receive face shields, face masks, gloves, disinfectant wipes, disinfectant spray and hand sanitizer,” the department said in a statement. “Cleaning will take place at each site every two to three hours. Voters waiting in line will be instructed to stand six feet away from others and wear a face covering.”


Residents can register to vote for the primary through Aug. 22. Officials said Aug. 26 is the last day to request a vote-by-mail ballot for the election.
