Keeping Your Polling Places Safe in the Age of COVID-19

School, workplaces, retail stores — almost every physical space has had to adapt to a world with COVID-19. With 2020’s federal elections fast approaching, our polling places will also need to prepare to accommodate voters. Now is the time to equip your voting locations with signage, barriers, personal protective equipment (PPE) and disinfecting supplies to ensure Election Day does not become “infection day.”

Signage has always played a role at the polls, from candidate signs to wayfinding guidance. Today, even more signage is needed to protect voters and staff at the polls.

Free-standing signage, such as fold-and-go towers, as well as wall, floor and window decals and table tents, can share the message across your venue. CDC infographics provide specific safety guidance in clear language with illustrations. Sidewalk signs and flag banners outside your polling places make voters aware of additional measure before they enter the building. Patriotic red, white and blue graphics inspire citizens as they embark on their civic duty.

Signage directs and reminds visitors to:

  • Stay 6 feet apart
  • Wipe down their station after use
  • Wear a mask
  • Use hand sanitizer before and after voting
  • Enter and exit the building safely via marked locations

Clear dividers can help protect areas between voting stations or at check-in to keep your volunteers safe. Dividers can be easily installed and then removed after Election Day and can be repurposed across your municipality for future events.

Finally, face shields and sanitizer stands can also be added to your location so volunteers have additional protections against the virus.

Voting is one of the most important duties in our democracy. Help your citizens perform that duty safely with help from DGI. To learn more, contact us so you can be ready for Election Day 2020.
