Some 900 Bethel voters participated in a water tank project referendum Tuesday. In light of the public concerns about potential spread of coronavirus, the Bethel Registrar of Voters say they took measures to protect both poll workers and voters. When setting up the polling places, they used Clorox wipes to clean table tops, privacy booths, marker pens and voting equipment. Checkers did a hands-free inspection of voter IDs. Rather than handing each voter a privacy folder, Ballot Clerks point to them. Most voters declined the folders. After each voter placed their ballot in the ballot scanner, the Tabulator Tenders directed voters to the place their folders in a box. During the day, neither the tickets or folders were reused. Also through out the day, the Assistant Registrars cleaned the pens and privacy booths with Clorox wipes. Hand sanitizer was also available at the polling places.
