State orders require changes to local polling places
May 21, 2020
Many of Crook County’s registered voters will experience a change to their regular election routine this year. To comply with state orders regarding social distancing, County Clerk Linda Fritz plans to change several polling locations.
“Our goal here is to have elections as normal as possible,” said Secretary of State Ed Buchanan last week as he unveiled the directives that will alter this year’s primary and general. The idea of introducing variations on the polling places normally used, he said, is “to try to maintain social distancing and other safety protocols”.
