HOLTON, Kan. (AP) — Two employees at a rural county clerk’s office in Jackson County have come down with COVID-19, forcing its other two employees to quarantine just days before the primary election.
Jackson County Clerk Kathy Mick has COVID-19. Mick says members of the Jackson County Elections Board are filling in to ensure the county's election goes forward Tuesday.
The Kansas Secretary of State’s office said Friday it is unaware of any other election office in Kansas whose staff has been quarantined. The secretary of state’s office has told local officials that individuals cannot be turned away from voting for not wearing a mask.
