covid-19 safeguards when voting in person

The City of Mont Belvieu and Barbers Hill ISD are committed to conducting a safe election in the unprecedented COVID-19 event. To ensure the health and safety of our staff and voters during the upcoming election, we have implemented the following safeguards.

  • Encourage absentee voting by all registered voters who are qualified to do so.
  • Consolidate polling location to one site at C.T. Joseph Conference Center.
  • 6-foot distance markers on the floors of polling location to physically remind voters to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizer readily available prior to entering and exiting the polling location.
  • Use of countertop screens at polling location to enhance separation between voters and poll workers. The aluminum, clear- acrylic screens are 6’6” long, 3’ tall, and will allow election officials to maintain social distance as they continue to serve voters.
  • Monitors will be stationed outside of the polling location to maintain, in adherence with social distancing guidelines, that no more than 10 individuals are in the polling area at one time.
  • Personal protection equipment (N 95 masks and gloves) will be available to all poll workers.
  • A stylus will be given to each voter to use on the voting screen. The voter will take the stylus with them when they exit. As an extra precaution, each voting device will be cleaned with alcohol-based wipes after each voter casts their vote.
  • As in all elections, curbside voting will be available if a voter with a disability is unable to enter the polling place for whatever reason.
