Scott County Auditor Seeks to Limit Public Exposure to COVID-19 by Consolidating Polling Places with Combined Precincts
DAVENPORT – Scott County Auditor and Commissioner of Elections Roxanna Moritz announced today she is consolidating polling places for the June 2, 2020 Primary Election in an effort to combat spread of COVID 19. Moritz said she temporarily is reducing the number of polling places to 23 from the usual 63.
“We cannot call off or postpone the election, but we can take steps to limit exposure to the corona virus for the county’s precinct election officials and the general public,” Moritz said. “Pursuant to Iowa law I have ordered consolidation and combination of polling places. Several of our usual locations were understandably hesitant to open their facilities to the general public. Also some locations did not lend themselves to social distancing requirements,” she said.
“Reducing the number of polling places also allows for reducing the number of precinct officials needed to run the election. Most precinct officials are older and more susceptible to serious complications from COVID-19. I especially do not want to unduly expose them to this danger,” Moritz said.
