Plymouth Sets Up Tents to Accommodate Early Voters
Thousands of early voters in Plymouth are filling their ballots outside to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The city set up tents in the parking lot where people can vote in-person or curbside. There’s also a drive through station where absentee voters can drop their ballots and go.
Sandy Engdahl, the city clerk, said while 24,000 people requested mail-in ballots, many prefer to drop it off instead of mailing it back.
“It gives them a peace of mind that their ballots are going to be good and ready to go. They don’t have to worry about anything else,” said Engdahl.
Since early voting started last Friday, city staff has seen about 700 to 900 people a day. Engdahl expects a 65% early voter turnout this year.
