Gail Pellerin is Vice President of the California Association of Clerks and Election Officials.  She says it should be business as usual at the polls – but they’re monitoring the situation: 
“With this virus, I mean, things can change at a moments notice so we’re keeping constant communication with health officials and our Secretary of State’s office and other county elections officials and we’ll respond accordingly as the need arises.”
A spokesperson with the Secretary of State Debra Bowen’s office says she’s reviewing the elections code to see how a serious medical event could affect the election – if at all. 
The last day to request a vote by mail ballot is May 12th.
