Voters head to the polls

Poll workers at Brittany Hill Middle School in Blue Springs go through the paces of an election day with coronavirus precautions in place. County election officials reported no major issues early Tuesday. Even though all Eastern Jackson County communities had at least one ballot measure, election officials combined precincts into 43 polling locations for this election, as opposed to more than 100 in many elections, to take advantage of large-spaced locations that normally would not be available and better encourage social distancing. 'So far, so good,' Jackson County Election Board Co-Director Corey Dillon said. "There's always some issues that come up when you've got this many polls, always small things.' She said the board employed workers with extra cleaning supplies, if needed, for polls. Voters have also been taking advantage of the curbside option at the polls. 'We've always had it,' Dillon said, 'but this time we were really promoting it.' Check www.examiner.net and The Examiner's smartphone app for election results. Due to press times, election results will be in Thursday's newspaper.
