|Information from County Clerk for April 7, 2020 Municipal Election (moved to June 2, 2020)|
|June 2, 2020 Municipal Election
Lincoln County Clerk, Crystal M. Hall, would like to share the following information with voters.
In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the April 7th Municipal Election was postponed until June 2nd by court order. The postponement has allowed more time for voters to request absentee ballots to be mailed to them so that they may vote their ballots in the safety of their homes. Voters are encouraged to request an absentee ballot if they feel at all concerned about appearing in person to vote. Voters may request an absentee ballot by visiting the county clerk’s website here and clicking on the “Elections” tab. Complete the “Absentee Ballot Request” and submit it via email, fax, or U.S. Mail as designated on the form. If you do not have internet access to complete the form, please call our office at (636)462-8090 to request an application to be mailed to you. The last day that we can mail an absentee ballot to a voter is May 20th. Absentee ballots must be returned to our office by 7 o’clock pm on June 2nd.
Additional planning has also been necessary to prepare for in person voting on Election Day. Normally, more than 80 election judges working in bipartisan teams would be required to conduct an election at our 19 polling locations. The majority of our election judges are advanced in age beyond 65 years old. The CDC classifies this age group as high risk for severe illness and for this reason, in combination with the prolonged absentee voting period, we are reducing the number of polling places for the June 2nd Election.
In order to reduce the number of bipartisan teams of election judges needed, we are changing from a precinct voting model to vote centers for this election. We will be opening five vote centers in the county on June 2nd for those who choose to cast their ballot in person. A voter may go to the location that is most convenient to them and cast their ballot. The vote centers will be located in larger buildings in order to provide space for social distancing. Markings will be used to provide the spacing guidelines; plexiglass screens will be in place to protect election judges and voters alike. Gloves, masks, and sanitizers will also be in use by our election judges to provide protection.
The vote centers will be located at the following buildings:
*Vote Center Northwest
*Vote Center Northeast
*Vote Center Southwest
*Vote Center Southeast
The vote centers will open at 6 o’clock am and will close at 7 o’clock pm as required by law. The process will be the same as in any election, the only difference being that a registered voter may go to the vote center of their choice to cast their ballot. Voters will need to show a form of identification as required by law in order to receive their ballot. Voters who do not have an acceptable form of ID will be allowed to cast a provisional ballot.
We ask that voters who decide to vote in person be patient, follow the CDC guidelines, and observe the markings to provide distancing and follow the instructions of the election judges to help make the process smooth and as safe as possible for everyone. We encourage the citizens of Lincoln County to follow the “Lincoln County Clerk & Election Authority” Facebook page to keep abreast of election announcements as well as other county information.
