San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters has identified four polling places for in-person voting in Highland under the state’s coronavirus safety measures for the 2020 Presidential General Election.

In order to allow voters to vote in-person without creating large crowds, voting will take place over four days, from Saturday, Oct. 31, to Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Highland City Manager Joseph Hughes reported to Highland City Council during its Tuesday, Sept. 8, meeting that, due to the coronavirus social distancing requirements and extended voting schedule, serving as a polling place meant a greater time and space commitment this year, which made finding qualifying venues more difficult.

While the county set a goal for a minimum of three polling places in Highland four have been proposed, Hughes said.

Polling is scheduled to take place at: Highland City Hall, 27215 Base Line; the San Manuel Event Center, 27923 Highland Ave.; Immanuel Baptist Church, 28355 Base Line and Highland Family YMCA at 7793 Central Ave.

To help limit the spread of coronavirus, mail-in voting is recommended and in-person voters are encouraged to vote early in order to help reduce crowds on Election Day, Nov. 3.

Mail ballot drop boxes will also be available at Highland City Hall and the Highland library, 7863 Central Ave. beginning Tuesday, Oct. 6.
