The polling place for each precinct must meet accessibility standards under federal law.

The polling place must have facilities accessible to elderly voters and voters with disabilities so that these voters have the same opportunity for access, participation, privacy, and independence available to all voters. This includes:

  • Parking spaces marked and available for voters with disabilities with blue signage
  • An accessible path to the facility that an individual travels to reach the polls
  • Accessible entrances to the facility
  • The paths of travel within the facility to the space where the voting systems are located
  • The space in the facility where the voting systems are located

If you believe that the polling place for your precinct does not comply with accessibility requirements, contact your county election board as soon as possible to inform them about this problem. It may be possible for the board to make temporary or permanent changes to the polling place to make it more accessible for all voters.

For more information, you can utilize the American Association of People With Disabilities (AAPD) resource.
