The announcement came as part of new Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) guidance released Sunday for the upcoming election, with the agency recommending not offering the stickers at all. 

The agency has also recommended having the stickers placed individually available for pickup.

Among other recommendations IDPH released Sunday included regular disinfecting of all shared objects like pens, ballot covers, and headphones and replacing those shared objects all together when possible.
