The Boone County Clerk's Office held a drive-thru voting event for those in Boone who tested positive for COVID-19 or are in quarantine due to the virus.

The event was hosted by Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Human Services. It took place Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This allowed the Clerk's Office to give quarantined voters the opportunity to vote safely without risking the safety of others.

Clerk Brianna Lennon said staff was outfitted in full PPE with masks, face shields and gloves.

Voters would drive up and be checked in by staff before receiving their ballot to fill out from their cars.

The quarantined voters would then cast their ballots in the voting machine.

Boone County Clerk Brianna Lennon said the county also has teams of bi-partisan election judges who will go to voters' homes if they are sent to isolation before 5 p.m. on Nov. 2.

Nearly 28,000 Boone County residents have already cast their ballots in the 2020 Election. That's well up from the 6,200 that did so in the 2016 election.
