  • Arizona, Florida, Illinois and OH will still hold their primaries on Tuesday

The process of the appeal began Monday night, Ohio Department of Health spokeswoman Melanie Amato said, as Florida, Arizona and IL prepare to vote on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, elections advocates including the League of Women Voters of OH have pushed for the state to further relax voting laws in response to the crisis, including allowing voters to designate anyone, including nursing-home staff, to deliver completed ballots, and to allow them to be delivered to any polling place, and not just county elections board early-voting centers.

Now, she said, pushing off the election raises some new concerns. But as of Monday night, Ohio's primary will continue as planned.

Hundreds of poll workers and election judges in IL have canceled their assignments, leaving election officials, particularly in Chicago, scrambling.

"This [mail] option to vote offers voters more days and more time in a crisis situation, especially when in-person voting may be very limited or very hard", said Amber McReynolds, a former Colorado election official who now runs the nonprofit National Vote at Home Institute and Coalition. She said workers will disinfect balloting locations throughout the day. Because many poll workers are older, they may be especially concerned about the virus.

"We want people to feel comfortable and confident going to the polls", Gribble said. The county has 13 polling location changes.

But Louisiana officials decided the risk was too great. For some, it may not be logistically possible. For some counties like Volusia, Florida, and Maricopa, Arizona - by far that state's largest - that became a benefit. Adrian Fontes, a Democrat, said he wanted voters to be able to fill out a ballot at home and drop it off at a polling place before polls close Tuesday.

Nursing homes will not be used as polling sites for the April 28th election, the Onondaga County Board of Elections said Friday.

"The doctors giving briefings in the national media suggest it could be months before we get to the point where there is stability", Frye said of the decision.

After consulting with election and health officials, Hobbs said all agreed that "the election should move forward tomorrow (Tuesday)".

The state's attorney general, a Republican, asked a judge to block the mailing of the ballots, saying it was obviously illegal. The county maintains it is staffed well enough that it shouldn't be a problem.

The Wyoming Democratic Party separately announced the in-person portion of caucuses and county conventions previously scheduled for April 4 has been suspended.

"They have been clear with their guidance that a mass gathering is banned, with polling locations are safe if we follow the recommendations to clean the environment then it'll be a safe experience for everybody involved". "Holding public events right now would put that in jeopardy, so this is the responsible course of action", Wyoming Democratic Party chairman Joe Barbuto said Thursday. Ballots must be returned on or before the primary May 12. The Board will supply each location with a sanitation kit.

"We've purchased gallons of rubbing alcohol and are having them transferred to spray bottles", spokesperson Steve Vancore said.

Along with Ohio Health Department Director Dr. Amy Acton, LaRose was set to give a news briefing in Columbus Monday morning to share "additional precautions being implemented in order to enhance the safety of Ohio voters on election day".
