|Subject:||Cleaning polling sites|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce a bill that requires the County Board of Elections to have polling site areas cleaned before the polls open and again within 10 hours after a polling site closes for the elections taking place on June 2, 2020 and November 3, 2020.
The COVID-19 virus crisis has caused a multitude of issues for the residents of Pennsylvania and concern for one’s health when trying to carry out their civic duty of voting should not be one of them. The voters of this Commonwealth who desire to personally go to their polling site to cast their vote should feel confident that their health will not be compromised in doing so. This bill puts the responsibility of making sure that polling site areas are cleaned on the County Board of Elections.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important legislation
Introduced as HB2527
