League of Women Voters


You may receive assistance to vote from any person of your choice. You may also ask for assistance from a poll worker. Curbside assistance and home voting is available in special circumstances. Please make arrangements with your county clerk's office in advance. Each polling place in the state will be equipped with a ballot marking device to assist voters who have difficulty reading or marking a ballot vote privately and independently. The ballot marking device is intended to assist the visually impaired, voters with disabilities and the elderly. Other voters will vote as they have in the past using the appropriate ballot for their county. Visually impaired voters can use headphones to listen to an audio ballot and make their selections using a Braille keypad. The ballot marking device has a touch screen with a zoom feature to enlarge the ballot print and a contrast feature to make the ballot easier to read for some voters. The ballot marking device only marks a ballot. No votes are stored in the machine. Votes are counted by the election board of your county. You can review and change your selections before the device marks a paper ballot. If you are using the ballot marking device, you may request a new ballot from a poll worker if you make a mistake. Additional instructions will be available at the polls and poll workers are trained to help if you request their assistance.

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