OHIO | Lawmakers call for statewide hygiene plan for polling places

(The Center Square) – State Reps. Tavia Galonski, D-Akron, and Bride Rose Sweeney, D-Cleveland, want a statewide hygiene plan for polling places during the general election.

In a letter to Secretary of State Frank LaRose, they request polling places practice sanitization, including wiping down high touch surfaces and making hand sanitizer available. They also want social distancing requirements, a requirement that voters and workers wear face coverings and for the state to encourage curbside and absentee voting.

“Anything less than a binding directive with standard protocols leaves room for voter disenfranchisement and the endangerment of poll workers,” Sweeney said in a news release.
