Each voter will use a clean pen to sign in and be offered a Q-Tip to mark their ballot so the voter does not have to touch the machine. The use of masks by voters and poll workers is optional, but encouraged.
Any voter 65 or over or disabled is encouraged to request a mail ballot from the Erath County Clerk’s Office. To request a ballot call 254-965-1444 or email Elections Office. The last day to submit an application for a ballot is July 2, 2020.
