Memorandum


Date: August 18, 2020

To: The Honorable Moke Simon, Chair, Lake County Board of Supervisors

From: Maria Valadez, Registrar of Voters

Subject: (a) Report on the status of preparations for the November 3, 2020 election, and (b) Request for the use of the Board chambers for elections purposes on November 3, 2020

Executive Summary: (include fiscal and staffing impact narrative):
I am requesting an opportunity to report to your Board on the status of preparations, in light of the ongoing pandemic, for the November 3, 2020 election.

In addition, in light of the need to make special arrangements to enable constituents to vote in person safely, with proper social distancing in place, I am requesting the use of the Board chambers on November 3, 2020. The use of the Board chambers would enable the setup of voting stations in the larger space, rather than in the cramped hallway area on the second floor. Admittedly, this is an extraordinary request and would necessitate that your Board meet in Zoom. But at this time, many constituents are expressing their intention to vote in-person and this one-time accommodation would increase our capacity to support in-person voting during the pandemic.
