All voters are encouraged to wear a face cover inside their polling station, regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status. However, election officials say any voter who does not wear a mask or blanket will not be denied the right to vote.

It’s written on the VotesPA site“We strongly encourage voters to wear masks out of respect for their fellow voters and for the dedicated election officials who work in the polling stations. Voters who do not wear a mask will not be denied their right to vote. “

Election officials are also urging voters to bring their own black or blue ink pens and hand sanitizer to their polling station. They also promote safe social distancing guidelines.
