Election Board prepares for traffic at the polls
The Dade County Board of Elections is preparing for voter traffic at the polls in the wake of the upcoming election.
Election Supervisor Lowanna Vaughan said that all individuals voting in-person at the polls will be spaced six feet apart. Constant sanitizing of the machines will occur and stylus pens will be handed out to be used to touch the voting machine screens instead of using hands.
Early Absentee ballots and in-person votes have not been completely totaled at this time. However, Vaughan confirmed that she had received 30 non-partisan, 219 democratic and 261 republican absentee ballots. For in-person votes, Vaughan said there are currently 426 votes for republican, eight democratic votes and one non-partisan.
