“None of our polling places are ready for this. None of our inspectors are ready for this. It was not on the calendar. It was not something that had been part of discussions with polling places at the beginning of the year,” said Czarny. “We are going to have to scramble to get ready for August, while we’re preparing for June.”

And with all the overtime and logistical issues this creates, it’s not going to be cheap.

“The budgets set for the boards of election are set for two elections, not three,” Czarny said. “And elections are our number one cost. And it means it could go over our election costs by a third”.
