The Dare County Board of Elections is focused on making voting during Covid-19 as safe and efficient as possible for both voters and poll workers.
Voters will see marks on the floor at 6-foot intervals to help them gauge proper social distancing. Masks will be available upon entry into the poll or voters can wear their own. Sanitizer will be available both entering and leaving the poll. Per federal law, voters who refuse to wear masks can’t be denied their vote—but surely, out of respect for their neighbors, all voters will don masks for the good of all.
Scheduling for Early Voting and Election day will begin shortly so those interested in applying for these paid positions are encouraged to do so by going online to the Dare County Board of Elections or picking up an application at the office.
After size assessments were made of all polls in Dare County, the Board of Elections voted to change certain voting site locations so that health and safety goals can be met. Once approved by the State Board, these plans will be finalized and announced.
