Local Poll Worker Trainee Contracts Bacterial Meningitis

The Franklin County Board of Elections is assuring staff and voters operations at its North side building will continue as usual after a poll worker in training contracted bacterial meningitis. The unnamed trainee was in the building for two hours last Thursday. Officials say early voting that began April 7 will continue uninterrupted through May 5.
