We provide several options to make it easier for voters with disabilities to cast a ballot.
Voting In Person with Assistance
You can bring an assistor with you or request assistance from our poll workers when you arrive to vote in person.
- You and the assistor 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 our poll worker know that you would like to use the ExpressVote to mark your ballot.
- The poll worker will give you a blank 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 the 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 an Accessible, Electronic OmniBallot
OmniBallot 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 send to you.
- As with all voters, you must first request a Vote By Mail ballot to receive one. You can call our office to request an accessible Vote By Mail ballot.
After we receive your request for an accessible Vote By Mail ballot:
- We will mail you a Vote By Mail packet with a backup paper ballot and a postage-paid return envelope.
- We will email you instructions and a link to access the remote ballot marking system on your computer.
After marking your ballot on your computer, you’ll see this screen:
- You must print the ballot, put it in the official return envelope, 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 back to us (no postage necessary) or dropped off at a Secure Ballot Intake Station at Early Vote sites during Early Voting hours, or at one of our four offices when they’re open.
