Every poll site in the state is required to have at least one accessible and operational accessible voting system on election day and during all early voting. As a voter with a disability, I have the right to:

  • A full and equal opportunity to vote;
  • Vote privately and independently;
  • Utilize accessible poll sites, voter registration systems, vote-by-mail balloting & other ballot casting devices; and
  • Receive assistance from a person of my own choosing (other than my employer or a union representative) when I cast my ballot;

These rights are protected by the following federal laws as well as related state law:

  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA);
  • The Voting Rights Act of 1965;
  • The Voting Accessibility for the Elderly and Handicapped Act of 1984; and
  • The National Voter Registration Act of 1993.
