What are the different ways to vote?

With the health crisis that is the Coronavirus, this year’s election is going to be a bit different from the rest. Many are worried that the polling places will be a spreading place for COVID-19, so the government has laid out some alternative options such as using an absentee ballot or voting early by mail. If you would like to vote in person, has a map that shows you all the polling locations in Morris. The polling places in Morris are The National Guard Armory, Federated Church, and the Evangelical Free Church.
