Public Health Officials and Voting Experts Release First-Ever Healthy Voting Guides

May 28, 2020 | Kim Rodgers

We’re all doing our part to keep ourselves and our communities safe. We’re staying home, and when we have to go out, we’re wearing masks and following social distancing guidelines. But 2020 is an election year, and we need to make sure our elections are safe, secure, and successful. That’s why we’ve partnered with the nonpartisan We Can Vote coalition to launch the country’s first-ever Healthy Voting guides to provide up-to-date information to voters on how to safely participate in this year’s elections.

The nonpartisan guides were drafted by experts from NACCHO, the American Public Health Association, the Center for Tech and Civic Life, and the Center for Civic Design. The guides cover best practices for mail voting and in-person voting, giving voters the opportunity to learn their state’s voting options and rules before they cast a ballot.

The guides advise voters to cast mail ballots when available and to practice physical distancing, mask wearing, and hand washing when dropping off a ballot or casting a vote in person. Earlier today, representatives from partner organizations involved in drafting these guides, including NACCHO, addressed the media in a press call. The recording of that call is now available.

Visit HealthyVoting.org to check out the Healthy Voting guide for your state, and share it with your friends, family, and community. Together, we can help make sure every eligible voter is able to safely register, vote, and have their voices heard.
