"We've got hand sanitizer. We've got cleaner to clean the precinct,” she said. “We've got spray bottles of cleaner for the precinct."
Other PPE includes gloves and masks for poll workers.
"Q-tips — we're going to use those if somebody doesn't want to use the stylists and take it with them,” Sloan said. “We've got pen stylists that the state's provided that the voters can use it and then take it with them."
All 82 counties will receive protective gear from the Secretary of State Office.
