Voting and COVID-19

In an effort to ensure a safe elections process for all voters, Madison County Election Officials, Probate Judge Frank Barger, Sheriff Kevin Turner, and Circuit Clerk Debra Kizer have put safety precautions in place to aid against the spread of COVID-19. See the below for helpful information regarding the upcoming November 3rd General Election.

Guidelines in place to protect the public and our election workers:

  • A mask or face covering is strongly encouraged while in the polling location- one will be provided at your request.
  • Please sanitize your hands upon entering the location.
  • Please maintain a distance of 6 feet between all other voters.
  • We encourage you to use your own pen or pencil to mark your ballot- one will be provided if needed.

Social Distancing:

Voters may experience delays due to the practice of social distancing. Election Workers will monitor the number of voters within the polling location at any given time and require that six feet of distance be kept between all voters. These measures are being put in place to ensure the safety of all persons involved in the elections process, including our valued Election Workers.
