How accessible are the polling places?

Some polling places will have temporary thresholds, ramps, signage, cones, and door props to improve accessibility. Please check in at a later time to find out more information.

Will there be curbside voting?

If needed, you may vote nearby a polling place from your vehicle. A poll worker will help you complete the required form(s) and return your ballot to the polling place.

To request curbside voting assistance, you must call in advance to coordinate a time and place or have an assistant request it at the polling place.

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

What other assistance can be offered?

Some additional assistance includes:
