As a safety measure, The Ohio Secretary of State has ordered changes for The Primary Election Day to avoid having polling places at senior residential facilities, in order to limit the exposure of elderly people to COVID-19.
The Akron NAACP recognizes the impact of the current health crisis on voting opportunities for our seniors. Starting today, the Akron Branch will provide rides to the polls. Priority will be given to citizens in one of the locations listed below.
If a senior citizen has difficulty entering the voting location, curbside voting will be available.
Senior Citizens needing a ride to the polls please contact 330-805-5550.
