Library staff steps up to help VA town process mail ballots

Chesapeake’s public libraries are closed to the public. While staffers are still busy with virtual projects and planning an eventual phased reopening, they saw a way to step up. For several weeks, three employees at the Central Library have helped prepare absentee ballot packets, stuffing each with two pages of voting instructions and a self-addressed, stamped return envelope. Another three to five are at the registrar daily, placing ballots in those packets to seal and send, sorting submitted ballots into one of 63 precincts, and answering phones.
