The Record-Herald



The Fayette County Board of Elections and Fayette County Public Health (FCPH) notified the public that “if you or someone you know is quarantined or under isolation for COVID-19, you may vote curbside at the Board of Elections.”

Park at the cone outside of the Fayette County Board of Elections office, 135 S. Main St. in Washington C.H., and call the number listed there. The person voting should let them know they are either isolated or quarantined due to COVID-19 so they can wear the proper PPE to the car.

This can be done anytime during the board of elections early voting hours until the day before the Nov. 3 general election.

Those hours are:

Friday – 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Saturday – 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sunday – 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Monday – 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

If you know anyone under quarantine or isolation please be sure to let them know that they are still able to get out there and vote, according to FCPH and the board of elections.

FCPH reminds all voters to practice healthy behaviors to protect yourself and others and slow the spread of COVID-19. The CDC recommends the following:

– Wash your hands before entering and after leaving the polling location.

– While in the polling location, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol frequently, especially after touching surfaces frequently touched by multiple people, such as door handles or voting machines.

– Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in lined trash cans. Wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.

– Wear a mask. Children under 2 and anyone who has trouble breathing, is incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance, should not wear a mask.

– Maintain at least six feet (about two arms’ length) of distance from others. It is important to continue social distancing even when you and others are wearing masks.

– Do not disinfect or wipe down the voting equipment yourself. Electronic voting equipment can be damaged by cleaners and disinfectants. If you use hand sanitizer before touching the voting equipment, ensure your hands are completely dry to avoid damaging the equipment. Wash your hands or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer after using the voting equipment.

– Avoid crowds by using early voting, or voting at off-peak times, such as mid-morning.
