Supervisor of Elections Temporarily Closes Palm Bay Administrative Office
Viera, FL – Oct. 30, 2020 – In an abundance of caution and in consult with the Department of Health, Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott has temporarily closed the Palm Bay Administrative Office after election workers tested positive for Coronavirus. Due to the multitude of safety measures and the ½” ballistic glass between affected workers and the voting public, voters did not have direct exposure with the affected individuals.
“We have been maintaining stringent safety protocols since the Presidential Preference Primary in March,” said Supervisor Scott. “It is a tribute to our strict safety measures that we have been able to process almost a half a million voters through the election process this year before having our first positive case.”
Voters wishing to take advantage of Early Voting before Saturday’s deadline may visit any of the nine remaining Early Voting sites. Three Early Voting sites, two in Palm Bay and a third in West Melbourne, are all located less than 10 miles away from the temporarily closed Palm Bay Office. A complete list of Brevard’s Early Voting sites is available on www.VoteBrevard.gov.
