Single-Use Poly Gloves for Sanitary Polling Places

This year's elections will be unlike others. The Covid-19 pandemic has placed a great emphasis on infection control reshaping the way we vote, perhaps forever. How will polling places keep in-person voters and workers safe against the spread of infection? Here's a simple solution!

The right to vote for presidential primary elections, school budgets, primary and general elections for statewide offices, and local elections is the foundation of this country. In most elections in the United States, you either need to vote in-person at an official polling place such as a school, community center or other public facility or by casting an absentee ballot.Disposable Clear Polyethylene Gloves

On Election Day, voters enter private booth areas to fill out their ballots. Gone are the days of hanging chads as states now use electronic voting systems, either optical scanning or touch screens. But this voting season will be completely different due to the pandemic.


The most common voting method uses paper ballots on which voters mark down their preferences, but with the public health threat posed by covid-19, commonly shared items such as ink pens, touch screens, keypads, tablets and computer keyboards used during in-person voting are a real concern for potential infection from cross-contamination prompting the CDC to release considerations for election polling locations and voters that you can view here+.

You do not have to sneeze or cough on a surface to transmit disease-causing organisms. According to scientists studying virus movements on surfaces in office buildings is that when you touch a surface with a virus or bacteria on it (door handle) you then you place it on another surface like a keypad.  You then go home or to another location and touch the table moving it to another location.

Highly contagious and viable on surfaces for long periods of time, cross-contamination has aided the spread of the coronavirus, an infectious pathogen, from coast to coast in just months. This new health event has brought a new level of heightened conscious to touching publically shared items and surfaces. Taking extra precautions to ensure the physical safety and mental well-being of election officials, workers and voters is a concern across the country.


Some districts have considered sanitizing surfaces with disinfectant wipes but these can harm electronics and delicate surfaces, plus disinfects are hard to secure and costly. With lengthy kill times (the amount of time that surfaces need to remain wet to fully disinfect) they are unreasonable for high volume turnovers of people. What if we told you something as simple as a pair of poly gloves can easily control the spread of infection?


Adding to thier arensal of masks, soap and hand sanitizer, some polling stations have decided to hand out a pair of polyethylene gloves to each registered voter.  Designed to prevent the cross-contamination and spread of germs, poly gloves are commonly used by bar tenders and food workers. As it turns out, these inexpensive disposable clear plastic type gloves can have a positive impact against the spread when at the polls.

Disposable polyethylene gloves are easy and fast to wear, provide basic hand barrier protection and are affordable. They are loose fitting, light weight and designed for quick, routine tasks that requires minimum tactility. The embossed surface is designed to help wearers grip items. When finished, they can be disposed into the trash or recycling bin when finished. But take our word for it, tap the link and ....
