With hundreds of voters visiting Jackson City Hall in the final days before the Nov. 3 General Election, City services are being altered so staff can help residents have their voices heard.
City departments at City Hall will be closed to the public on Tuesday, Nov. 3 with employees working remotely. City Manager Jonathan Greene recently planned this one-day service change so employees from other departments could assist with election activities. The City Clerk's Office will remain open on Election Day to assist voters with registration and absentee ballots and is not impacted by this service change.
“We expect large numbers of voters coming to City Hall on Election Day. Having less employees and residents in the building means we can better control indoor capacities and help mitigate some COVID-19 concerns,” Greene said.
Voters may utilize an absentee ballot drop box outside the front entrance of City Hall and a drop box inside the City Clerk’s Office. All City Hall departments will reopen to the public with normal business hours on Wednesday, Nov. 4.
