At the polling site
If you vote at a polling site, to check polling site accessibility, look for the wheelchair symbol on the postcard insert that will be mailed to you about a month before the election.
In some polling sites, temporary thresholds, ramps, signage, cones, and door props, are used to improve access to the facility.
If your polling site is not accessible, you may vote on a paper or an electronic ballot from a nearby accessible location, including a car. A poll worker will qualify you to vote and return the voted ballot to the polling place.
To request curbside voting assistance, you can:
- call in advance to coordinate a time and place.
- have an assistant make the request inside the polling site.
Accessible voting system
Each polling site in the county has a touch screen voting system with:
- an audio option that reads the ballot to you
- large print
