Voting On Election Day
Graphic: Curbside Voting Encouraged
Verbiage Suggestion: While in-person voting will be available, curbside voting is the safest Election Day option. Just drive up to your assigned precinct, receive a ballot, fill it out in the privacy and safety of your own car, seal it in an envelope, and hand that sealed envelope to the election official. All curbside ballots will be put into the voting machine to be counted at the end of the day
