They also mentioned tips for early voting. Suggesting that people drop off their absentee ballot to the city clerk’s office to ensure your vote gets counted in time.
“This is a great way for people to get put, participate in democracy, to vote early and not jeopardize other people’s health,” said Milroy.
“The other part is simple convenience. Nobody likes long lines on Election Day,” said Mayor Paine. “That causes people to not want to vote. And so if we can minimize the amount of people showing up on Election Day, that’s more people that get to participate in our democracy.”
