Health Protocols for Voters

R CHECKLIST FOR VOTERS

The following are the minimum recommended health protocols for all voters in Texas. These minimum health protocols are not a limit on the health protocols that individuals may adopt. Individuals are encouraged to adopt additional protocols consistent with their specific needs and circumstances to help protect the health and safety of all Texans.

The virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to others by infected persons who have few or no symptoms. To mitigate this threat, everyone should rigorously follow the practices specified in these protocols, all of which facilitate a safe and measured reopening of Texas. The virus that causes COVID-19 is still circulating in our communities. We should continue to undertake practices that protect our communities.

Please note, public health guidance cannot anticipate every unique situation. Individuals should stay informed and take actions based on common sense and wise judgment that will protect health and support economic revitalization.

Health protocols for voters:

£ To the extent feasible, maintain at least six feet separation from other individuals at the polling location. In addition to practicing such distancing when feasible, other measures such as hand hygiene, cough etiquette, cleanliness, and sanitation should be rigorously practiced.

£ Self-screen before going to a polling place for any of the following, new or worsening signs or symptoms of possible COVID-19:

£ Cough

£ Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

£ Chills

£ Repeated shaking with chills

£ Muscle pain

£ Headache

£ Sore throat

£ Loss of taste or smell

£ Diarrhea

£ Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit

£ Known close contact with a person who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19

£ Voters who exhibit any of the above-mentioned symptoms associated with COVID-19 when they arrive at a polling location may want to consider utilizing curbside voting, to the extent they meet the eligibility requirements, which is available at all polling locations. These voters should contact their county election office with questions about the curbside voting process in their county and the eligibility requirements.

£ Voters should consider bringing their own marking instruments such as a pen, pencil with eraser, or stylus to use when checking-in to vote and for marking their ballot. Voters should contact their county election office to determine what type of marking devices are appropriate to use for the ballots in their county.

£ Upon entering a polling place, wash or disinfect hands. Wash or disinfect hands after any interaction with election workers, poll watchers, or other individuals at the polling place and after using voting system equipment or marking a ballot.

£ Voters should bring their own hand sanitizer into the polling location and should use hand sanitizer to disinfect their hands after leaving the polling location.

£ Consistent with the actions taken by many individuals across the state, consider wearing cloth face coverings (over the nose and mouth) when entering the polling place, or when within six feet of another person who is not a member of the individual’s household. If available, individuals should consider wearing non-medical grade face masks.

£ If the election judge is not able to determine the identity of a voter wearing a face covering, the voter should be prepared to lower or remove their face covering when checking-in at a polling place. After the voter’s identity has been confirmed, the voter should wear their face covering through the rest of the voting process.

£ If a voter contracts COVID-19 (or other sickness or physical condition that prevents the voter from appearing at the polling place on election day without a likelihood of needing personal assistance or of injuring the voter’s health) after the deadline to submit an application for a ballot by mail, the voter should contact their county election officer for more details about submitting an Application for Emergency Early Voting Ballot Due to Sickness or Physical Disability.

£ Individuals aged 65 or older are at a higher risk of COVID-19. To the extent possible, avoid contact within six feet with individuals aged 65 and older. Individuals aged 65 and older should stay at home as much as possible. Such individuals may consider submitting an Application for a Ballot by Mail to their county election officer so that they can receive a blank ballot and return their voted ballot by mail.

APPLICATIONS TO VOTE BY MAIL

Schleicher County Elections is accepting Applications to vote by mail for the Runoff Election on July 14, 2020 and the General Election on November 3, 2020.

If you received a ballot by mail in the Primary Election is it not necessary to complete another application.

In Texas, in order to vote by mail, a voter must have a qualifying reason.  A voter may vote early by mail if they: 

  • will be away from their county on Election Day and during early voting;
  • are sick or disabled;
  • are 65 years of age or older on Election Day; or
  • are confined in jail, but eligible to vote.

One of the grounds for voting by mail is disability. The Election Code defines “disability” to include “a sickness or physical condition that prevents the voter from appearing at the polling place on election day without a likelihood of needing personal assistance or of injuring the voter's health.” (Sec. 82.002).  If a voter believes they meet this definition, they can submit an application for ballot by mail.  

You may request your application with the Elections Office by mail or by email:

  • RUNOFF ELECTION HAS BEEN POSTPONED BY ORDER OF THE GOVERNOR TO JULY 14, 2020.

    UPDATE: MAY 12, 2020
    Governor Greg Abbott issued a proclamation suspending certain provisions of the Texas Election Code to expand the early voting period for the July 14, 2020 primary runoff election and other elections occurring on that date. Pursuant to the Governor’s proclamation, the early voting period for any election authorized to occur on July 14, 2020 will begin on Monday, June 29, 2020 and last through Friday, July 10, 2020, excluding any legal state or federal holidays. As the proclamation recognizes, this expansion will allow for increased in-person voting opportunities for the July 14, 2020 elections while maintaining appropriate social distancing standards in response to the COVID-19 disaster.
