Frederick County residents who have recently tested positive for the COVID-19 virus and have not voted by mail-in ballot do have options for voting for the November 3, 2020 Presidential General Election.
If you are in isolation or quarantine, you can designate someone who is healthy as an agent to come to the Board of Elections and get a ballot for you, and return it to the office. If you do not have someone who can act as an agent, contact the election office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Election officials stress that under no circumstances should a voter who is positive for the coronavirus and who is still supposed to be in isolation go to vote in person at an early voting location or, on Election Day, to a vote center in Frederick County.
“We want to make sure everyone who wants to vote can vote, but we have an obligation to keep our election judges and voters at the polls safe, as well as anyone else working to support this election,” stated Stuart Harvey, the county’s Election Director.
