In a statement the TGC Elections Office said, “Voters are reminded that there is no electioneering in the poll so shirts, hats, facemasks, pins, etc. that support a candidate, party, or measure on the ballot cannot be worn in the poll. No electronic recording devices, including cell phones, are allowed in a poll.”

The TGC Elections office will provide one glove to voters to use throughout the process and face masks are required.

“There is no straight party voting in this election so voters will need to mark each race individually.  All contests do not have to be voted for the ballot to count.” The TGC Elections Office stated.

Their statement on absentee ballots or ballots by mail is below:

“Voters that wish to return their voted absentee ballot (ballot by mail) may only do so at the election office, 113 W. Beauregard Ave.  The voter is the only one that can return the ballot and they must show photo ID.

“To receive an absentee ballot, a ballot by mail application is required.  To qualify, the voter must: be 65 years or older, disabled, expect to be out of the county (both during early voting and on Election Day and the ballot must be mailed out of the county), or confined in jail.  The application cannot be delivered in person once early voting has begun nor can it be faxed or emailed.  The law permits faxed or emailed copies only to “hold the date” when the deadline of 10/23 has not been met but the original application must still be mailed and received within 4 days.”
