Congregation Shaare Emeth’s Justice at the Center Initiative Every Voice, Every Vote has been tasked with making voting safe and accessible for all. Consequently, we have amassed a group of congregants who became notaries and will be available to notarize ballots for the November 3rd election in a safe manner.
The entire process will take place outside the South Lobby entrance. Two tables with one chair at each table will be placed outside for the volunteers. These tables will be 6-feet apart from each other. A portable sink will be placed outside for the notaries to wash their hands after handling the clipboard and ballot. Notaries will be instructed to park in the South Lobby parking and that they are not allowed to enter the building. Notaries will wear masks.
If someone is unable to get to Temple from our Congregational Community and needs their ballot notarized, volunteer notary will go to the home and the whole procedure will occur outside the house with masks and staying 6-feet apart using the same procedure as above.
