Secretary Adams says voters of all political spectrum will be pleased with the new plan of absentee ballot voting.

The Governor mentioned that the State Board of Elections is also working on a plan to safely conduct limited in-person voting and possibly utilizing a drive-thru voting option. This is due in part for those voters that cannot vote by mail.
