Municipal primary elections today throughout the state

New Albany Municipal Clerk Frankie Roberts posts some of the notices required for voters.

New Albany Municipal Clerk Frankie Roberts spent time Monday getting the community center ready for Tuesday’s party primary elections. Most municipalities will be holding the primaries.

A number of notices had to be posted to conform with CDC COVID-19 precautions as well as regulations regarding state election laws.

Voters will have social distancing, entering one door and exiting through another, moving to the registration area and then the divided area where the voting machines will be placed. Cotton swabs will be available to touch the voting machines and hand sanitizer will be available as well.
