CDC Offers Tips for Safe Voting on Election Day

Wear a mask, stay six feet away from other voters and use hand sanitizer frequently. Those words of advice are among a list of Election Day tips issued Monday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition to the aforementioned common sense tips, the CDC also advises voters to bring their own black ballpoint pens so they don’t have to risk infection by using a contaminated one. Voters should also have all necessary materials ready to go to reduce the time they spend in polling places, the CDC suggests. If a polling place is too crowded, turn around and try again at a non-peak time — such as mid-morning, per the CDC.
