Assistance for Voters with Disabilities

Check your county Voter Information Guide


Your county Voter Information Guide will:

  • Describe how persons with disabilities can vote privately and independently
  • Display a wheelchair symbol if your polling place is accessible to voters with disabilities

At the polling place or vote center

If you need help marking your ballot, you may choose up to two people to help you. This person cannot be:

  • your employer or anyone who works for your employer
  • your labor union leader or anyone who works for your labor union

Curbside voting allows you to park as close as possible to the voting area. Elections officials will bring you a roster to sign, a ballot, and any other voting materials you may need, whether you are actually at a curb or in a car.

Contact your county elections office to see if curbside voting is available at your polling place or vote center.

All vote centers are required to be accessible to voters with disabilities and will have accessible voting machines. Remote accessible vote-by-mail (RAVBM) systems provide an accessible option for voters with disabilities to receive their ballots at home and mark them independently and privately before sending them back to elections officials.

Vote centers are available for voters living in Madera, Napa, Nevada, San Mateo, and Sacramento counties. See The Voter's Choice Act for more information on the Voter’s Choice Act and vote centers.
