At a National Geographic event, Dr. Anthony Fauci said that there’s “no reason” voting can’t be done in person amid the pandemic.
“I think if carefully done, according to the guidelines, there’s no reason that I can see why that not be the case. For example, you know, when you look at going to a grocery store now in many regions and counties and cities that are doing it correctly, they have X’s every six or more feet. And it says, ‘Don’t leave this spot until the person in front of you left their spot.’ And you can do that, if you go and wear a mask, if you observe the physical distancing, and don’t have a crowded situation, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to do that,” Fauci said.
Fauci noted if someone “is compromised physically or otherwise,” they might want to consider mail in voting as an alternative. He added, “There’s no reason why we shouldn’t be able to vote, in person or otherwise.”
