All voters will be expected to maintain and adhere to social distancing requests and remain six feet apart.  Spacing distance will be marked on the floor of the lobby of the Seminole County Court House.

In an effort to sanitize the electronic ballot marking devices (BMDs), please allow the elections staff time to wipe down each machine after it is used.
