WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) - Circuit Clerks Offices have been preparing polling locations for in-person voting for what could a record-breaking presidential election.
The polls open Tuesday at 7 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m. that night.
“We will first of all be asking for patience from everybody because we will be limiting the amount of people in at one time,” Clay County Circuit Clerk Kim Hood said.
That’s just one of the efforts her office is undertaking to keep Clay County voters safe on Election Day.
Brown explained her office is asking everyone to wear their masks when they come inside.
The state of Mississippi does not require masks to be worn when voting; however, masks are encouraged statewide.
Clay County, along with Mississippi's 81 other counties, will have hand sanitizer and masks available for any voters in need of the items.
Any voters diagnosed with coronavirus or has coronavirus symptoms can still vote curbside.
Hood anticipates Tuesday to be a busy day, but she hopes for things to go as smoothly as possible.
Statewide, voters who are still in line to vote at 7 P.M. will still be able to cast their ballots.
