The Village of Lewiston is utilizing several safety measures for Tuesday’s election. When participants enter the Red Brick Municipal Building gym at 145 N. Fourth St.:

√ There will be a dedicated entry and exit. All doors will be open from noon until 9 p.m., so residents won’t have to touch them.

√ When voters arrive, they will be required to wear a mask – unless medically unable to do so. Masks and gloves will be provided for those in need.

√ Participants will be asked to sanitize their hands.

√ Paper ballots will be used instead of a voting machine.

√ People will be given a single-use pen.

√ Markers on the floor will indicate proper social distance requirements for those waiting in line (if applicable).

√ Inspector tables will be at least 6 feet apart. Sample ballots, likewise, will be posted in different areas.

√ There will be no congregating or group gatherings.

√ The room will be cleaned in regular increments throughout the day.

For those residents who wish to vote via absentee ballot, they can obtain a form from the clerk’s office (also at the Red Brick) until 5 p.m. Monday.

Ballots must be delivered back to the clerk’s office by 5 p.m. Monday.

Trustees Nick Conde and Dan Gibson are running for reelection. They are challenged by Keith Casey Ahlas.
