A number of public health protocols were implemented to ensure the safety of voters and of election workers, including required social distancing, the wearing of face masks and frequent sanitizing of surfaces.

Electronic voting was also made available to voters in the 2020 election. Of all votes cast, 86 percent were submitted online and by telephone, compared to 67 percent of electronic votes in 2016.

Thank you to all who participated in the 2020 municipal and school board elections, and congratulations to the winning candidates!
