CAMERON COUNTY, Texas – Cameron County’s voting locations are predominately public spaces such as schools and government-owned buildings.
On election day in November, Elections Administrator Remi Garza tells CBS4/LOCAL 23, extra precautions will be taken to keep voters and workers safe, “we’re hoping to have everybody have a chance to sanitize their hands before they actually come into the polling place and I will putting a protective shield between the employees the poll workers and voters to prevent any sort of cross-contamination.”
Additional measures are expected to include sanitizing before and after voting booths are used and having hand sanitizer when voters leave a polling location.
In an effort to make November 3rd’s election day a smooth operation, Garza is urging voters eligible to mail in their ballots, “and then also to vote during early voting where they would be able to go to vote at any one of the 17 locations.”
