Sanitizing Stations for Polling Places
This pandemic has presented a unique challenge to the polling station staff. The challenge of assuring the voters that their safety has been taken care of.
Every electoral polling station – whether it’s for a presidential election, federal election, state election or local election – requires a high standard of hygiene to ensure maximum safety for voters.
Setting up hygiene stations is mandatory, and if you’re looking for a sanitizing station for polling stations that will hold up to heavy usage and cater to all the hygiene needs of the polling booth, we’ve got the perfect product for the job.
We don’t use the word “perfect” lightly. GermBot has features that will dispel voters’ fear of viruses and help to restrict the spread of pathogens.
Why Germbot Sanitizing Stations at Polling Stations Are the Best Option
1. Hands-Free Sanitizer Dispenser
Hands-free sanitizing dispensers appeal more to people than the traditional dispensers. A study found that health workers completed more tasks when touch-free sanitizing dispensers were installed in their hospital or medical facility.
In general, hands-free dispensers are used more frequently. They have a modern look and feel, and people like knowing that they’ll have no physical contact with an object that might pass on the virus.
It makes sense to install the GermBot hands-free hygiene stations at polling stations because they will be used a lot throughout the day. A manual dispenser will be subject to wear and tear due to repeated and continuous use and require frequent replacement.
The GermBot is easy to install and use and works well with any sanitizing gel.
2. Built for Heavy Use at Polling Stations
GermBot was designed specifically for use at polling places. Every one of its features is meant to help election management staff ensure hygiene for themselves and voters. The sanitizing station weighs only 60lbs, has wheels (for easy portability) and can be easily placed in a corner or tight space.
The GermBot hygiene station can dispense paper towels and disinfectant wipes which can be used to clean the machines, buttons, and other items. It has a lockable storage compartment for sanitizer refills, extra wipes, paper towels, and other articles.
It also has a 7-gallon trash can where people can dispose of used tissues, wipes, etc.
Make the Election a Success
Elections can get the maximum voter participation if you assure them you’ve taken the proper measures to constrain the spread of deadly bacteria and viruses.
The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends regular cleaning and disinfection of the electronic voting apparatus. It also recommends the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol and placing dispensers at visible, frequently used locations such as entries, exits, and registration desks.
The Rochester, NY city government has issued protocols for polling stations such as:
Encouraging voting by mail to limit direct contact
Asking voters and election judges to wear face coverings
Placing sanitizing stations at entries and exits
Making disposable masks available at polling stations
Regular use of sanitizer by election judges
Cleaning and disinfection of surfaces and shared materials
Hand-sanitizing stations for polling stations can be a lifesaver for polling station volunteers, who will come into contact with potentially hundreds of people.
