Pennsylvania Department of State officials tell WLVR News they encourage people casting their ballots in person to wear masks out of respect for their fellow voters and for the workers staffing the polling places.

However, voters who are not wearing a mask will not be turned away. 

The department says it has supplied counties with masks, face shields, hand sanitizer for polling places.
