At the polling place

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

Curbside voting

If needed, you may voter from a nearby accessible location, including a car. A poll worker will help you complete the required form(s) 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 place in the county has a touch screen voting system with the following:

  • an audio option that reads the ballot to you
  • a universal plug for a personal assistive device
  • large print (24 point)

Voting Information

Audio versions of the candidate statements are available on request. The recordings are available approximately four weeks before the election.

Additional options

  • a ride to your polling place
  • a ballot delivered to your home and returned to the Elections Office.
