When voters in Kansas head to the polls, they will find masked election workers seated behind plastic panels, and they will use disposable stylus pens to cast their ballots. The state is receiving $4.6 million in federal aid to prepare for the election, with $2.6 million going to county election officials. The plan now is to spend $1 million on personal protective equipment, including hand sanitizer, disinfectant spray, face masks and disposable gloves. Each polling site also will receive two Plexiglas shields to protect election workers and voters, along with disposable stylus pens for voters. Voters with underlying health conditions or other concerns are still being advised to request a mail-in ballot. Most however, will be able to vote safely and securely in person this fall.
