As more people vote absentee in Hinds County and prepare to hit the polls on Election Day, more personal protection equipment can always be used. “COVID is an issue right now, and we want everyone to be safe. Voting is such an important thing. We want to make sure everyone feels comfortable where they are going,” said Kim Lewis, with Visit Jackson. Mississippi Prison Industries donated hand sanitizer and 12,000 masks to all 108 precincts in Hinds County. “All of this is handmade by our guys at our facilities. The purpose of what we do is to give job opportunities to our inmate population to ensure that they have skill sets that can translate out to when they get released,” said Mississippi Prison Industries CEO, Bradley Lum.
Masks, sanitizer will be on hand for voters on Tuesday
