Election Department temporarily closes due to COVID-19
CLINTON TOWNSHIP – Clinton Township Clerk Kim Meltzer announced today the Township Election’s Department will close for the time being to assess the staff’s exposure to COVID-19. Three employees have tested positive for COVID-19.
“Due to an abundance of caution, we are shutting the department down temporarily and sending everyone to get tested,” said Meltzer. “It’s unfortunate we have to do this so close to the election, but there is no greater priority than the health and safety of our employees and residents,” she said.
Meltzer expects the department to reopen by Monday. In the meantime, there is staff on hand to empty outdoor collection boxes. “We will continue to receive ballots by mail and from the six collection boxes throughout the Township,” she said.
Meltzer referred residents to the Township’s website for updates on when the Election Department will reopen.
