You may have heard something about an election happening next week in the U.S.
If you're a voter in Ohio's Lake, Cuyahoga or Geauga counties doing in-person voting, you can thank a plastics company, as well as poll workers, for helping to keep things safe. Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions in Mentor, Ohio, donated 10,000 vinyl floor markers to help voters at 351 precincts find the proper social distance spot to stand on while they wait.
While other sites may have to rely on a generic X taped on the floor, Avery's film-based graphic stands out clearly while also thanking voters.
"We knew we had to come up with a solution to maintain social distancing at the polls for this election and as I was considering how we would procure floor markers, I recalled seeing Avery Dennison's graphics team on LinkedIn and seeing these amazing car wraps they were producing," Lake County Elections Board Director Ross McDonald told The News-Herald of Willoughby, Ohio. "Knowing this, I saw an opportunity to reach out to see if floor markers were within their capability and it went from there."
