Pandemic Rules In Place During Early Voting in JP

People waited in line for the noontime start of early voting at the Margarita Muniz School on Thursday. It was the only day that early voting was being offered in Jamaica Plain for the September 1 primary. While people tried to social distance themselves six feet from each other outside of the school, lines were clearly taped to the floor on the inside, and hand sanitizer was distributed by a poll worker wearing gloves and a plastic face shield. Seeing voters lined up on Child Street energized Jamaica Plain's Marie Turley, Democratic State Committee Woman (2nd Suffolk), who was outside of the school supporting state Rep. Liz Malia (D-11th). Early voting is being offered in different neighborhoods through Aug.
