We provide several options to make it easier for voters with disabilities to cast a ballot. 

Voting In Person with Assistance

A voter may seek assistance from workers at the polling place who have been trained to use the accessible voting machine or bring someone to help them vote.

  • You and the person assisting you will complete and sign a form acknowledging that you requested assistance to vote. 
  • The assistor can read the ballot to you, mark your selections on the ballot, and put the ballot in the scanner to be tabulated. 

Voting In Person Using an ExpressVote Ballot Marking Device

Our ExpressVote ballot marking devices display your ballot on a screen and allow you to mark your ballot privately and independently, with the help of audio, enlarged text, braille, sip and puff, and other features. 

  • When you check in to vote, let the poll worker know that you would like to use the ExpressVote to mark your ballot. 
  • The poll worker will give you an ExpressVote ballot, and after you make your selections, the ExpressVote ballot with your selections will be printed and provided back to you. 
  • Then, you'll take your ExpressVote ballot and place it in the scanner to be tabulated. This is the same scanner that tabulates all the in-person ballots at that location.

Voting By Mail Using the Electronic Enhanced Ballot

Enhanced Ballot is a remote ballot marking system that allows you to receive and mark your ballot at home on your computer. You must then print the ballot and return it in a signed Vote-by-Mail envelope that we mail to you. 

  • As with all voters, you must first request a Vote-by-Mail ballot to receive one. You can call or email our office, or make your request using our online request form. When you complete the form, you simply select the option to use our remote ballot marking system. 

After we receive your request for an accessible Vote-by-Mail ballot:

  • We will mail you a Vote-by-Mail packet and a postage-paid return envelope. The packet will NOT include a paper ballot since you received your ballot by email. 
  • We will email you the instructions and required information to access the remote ballot marking system on your computer.

After marking your ballot on your computer: 

  • You must print the ballot, put it in the official return envelope our office mailed to you, sign the envelope, and make sure the ballot is received by our office no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day.
  • Vote-by-Mail ballots can be mailed (no postage necessary) or dropped off at one of our four offices during office hours, at Early Voting sites during Early Voting hours, or at one of our Secure Ballot Intake Stations during hours of operation. The Early Voting and Secure Ballot Intake Station hours and locations can be found on the home page of this website. 



Whether you choose to vote at one of our Early Voting locations, by mail, or on Election Day, you'll receive a paper ballot. For voters with disabilities, we have ADA compliant voting machines with audio and visual components so that you can mark your ballot using the touchscreen, or the touch-pad. Once you have made your selections, the machine produces a voter-verifiable paper ballot that is then scanned and tabulated along with the pen-to-paper ballots.
