El Paso commissioners vote to support mail-in ballots to protect voters from COVID-19

El Paso County Attorney Jo Anne Bernal said about six weeks ago the state of Wisconsin held their elections during the height of the pandemic in their community. Wisconsin then confirmed that at least 17 people were infected with the virus directly in connection with voting in-person, she stated.

“It would be foolish to pretend like there wasn’t a real threat to the health and safety of persons who try to exercise their right to vote in person and we should not be in a position of whether a citizen has to choose between their health and safety, and to exercise their right to vote,” Bernal said.
