Urgent Updates


Once elections are over, is there any new state guidance about post-election procedures in light of Coronavirus (such as swearing-in procedures)?


Yes, on Friday October 30th, the Secretary of State’s office issued new election guidance, 2020-33, which includes helpful analysis of swearing-in and other pandemic related issues (see Section IV of the guidance).


Do we have to meet in person to swear in newly-elected city officials?


The guidance mentioned in the previous answer suggests that swearing in by a teleconferenced open meeting is possible provided certain procedures (outlined in the guidance) are followed.
