Resumen:

We aimed to assess the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection for polling station members during the Catalan elections in February 2021. We compared the incidence 14 days after the elections between a cohort of polling station members (N= 18,304) and a control cohort paired by age, sex and place of residence. A total of 37 COVID-19 cases (0.2%) were confirmed in the members of the polling stations and 43 (0.23%) in the control group (p-value 0.576). Our study suggests that there was no greater risk of infection for the members of the polling stations.
