Don’t know what to expect when you go to the polls during the Covid-19 pandemic?
Welcome to our walkthrough of the new voter registration and voting process.
1. As per lockdown regulations for all persons in public spaces, wear a mask before registering and voting. The election officials will refuse you admission to the voting booth if you don’t have a mask or facial cover, and you won’t be able to register, change your address, or vote.
2. While at your voting station, maintain a distance of 1.5 meters from fellow voters, election officials, party agents, and observers at all times.
3. Wait your turn before entering the voting station, as there may only be a restricted number of individuals inside.
4. Before entering and leaving the voting location, an election officer will squirt liquid sanitiser on your hands.
5. Before putting the ink to your thumbnail, election authorities will check that it is dry, and you will be asked to wait a moment before moving on to ensure that the ink has dried before your hands are sanitized before leaving the polling station.
6. Before and after each vote, all voting station surfaces will be disinfected with 70% alcohol.
7. If anything isn’t right, say so. If someone gets too close to you, or if someone’s behavior makes you uncomfortable, speak out politely. Make sure you and others are safe.
