All vote centers have been chosen with special needs voters in mind. Each location will provide handicap parking and be able to accommodate individuals in wheelchairs, as well as, individuals with visual or hearing impairments. Often times a temporary modification will be made to the polling location providing easier accessibility for the voter.
Accessible Voting Systems
All vote centers have accessible voting devices for use by all voters. These machines can be adjusted for vision difficulty and have headphones to have the ballot read to the voter. In addition to the accessible voting devices, each poling location will have magnifying instruments, large print versions of the publicity pamphlets, and trained poll workers who are ready to assist you.
