This week, after much deliberation, Nancy Nylund decided that she’s staying home this primary.
“It was actually quite agonizing because I love working at the polls,” she said.
Nylund, 68, has served as an inspector of elections in her Plymouth Meeting precinct for several years. But she is also on immunosuppressant medication for her rheumatoid arthritis, and so she decided she didn’t want to risk coming into contact with someone infected with COVID-19.
As a retired nurse, she knows what would be at stake.
