On May 1st, 2020 Secretary Buchanan issued a directive requiring polling places be large enough to accommodate social distancing.
For the upcoming 2020 Primary Election, our office has determined that the Teton County Weed & Pest Building and the Alta Branch Library do not have sufficient floor space to accommodate social distancing protocols. We look forward to maintaining these two polling locations in near the future.
The August 18th, 2020 Primary Election Vote Center locations will be the Teton County/Jackson Recreation Center, the Teton County Library, and the Old Wilson Schoolhouse/Wilson Community Center.
For the safety of the election judges and the public during the pandemic, our office will be focusing our efforts towards opening the largest vote centers for election day, encouraging absentee voting by mail (all registered voters were sent an absentee ballot request form), and opening the absentee polling site at the County Administration Building for 45 days prior to election day starting July 2nd, 2020 and ending August 17th, 2020. We are also installing a secure ballot drop box at the Administration Building so that voters may return their ballots without entering the building.
