The City of Morris continues to encourage residents to arrange for absentee ballots for the upcoming August primary and November general elections. City Manager Blaine Hill said on the KMRS Community Connection that with the coronavirus, they want to keep the number of people coming to polling places at a minimum for the safety of voters and election judges.
“If you don’t need to go to a polling place to vote, don’t do it,” said Hill. “Because you’re just putting yourself at risk, you’re putting the judges at risk.”
The Morris City Council approved at their Tuesday meeting a slate of election judges to serve three polling places in the City of Morris. Voters will find new health and safety measures in place if they do come to a polling station. Absentee ballots can be requested through the Secretary of State’s website or by contacting the County auditor’s office.
