At the polling place

In some polling places, temporary thresholds, ramps, signage, cones, and door props, are used to improve access to the facility.

Accessible voting system

Each polling place in the county has a touch screen voting system with:

  • an audio option that reads the ballot to you
  • large print

Curbside voting

If your polling place 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
