The Indiana National Guard is working with the Secretary of State’s office to distribute personal protective gear for polling places for the primary election.
Brig. Gen. Dale Lyles says the Guard worked with Republicans and Democrats to get an idea of how much PPE is needed at sites.
“And over the course of the next five to 10 days we will be delivering enough PPE for all the workers at those sites to be protected,” Lyles says.
Lyles says the Secretary of State’s office has a plan for social distancing at polling sites.
Gov. Eric Holcomb says that effort is just part of the Secretary of State's work to have safe elections in the global pandemic.
"By pushing it back a month, we made the right decision," Holcomb says.
