Assistance for Voters with Disabilities
Your county sample ballot booklet includes instructions on how voters with disabilities are able to vote privately and independently, and it will display the International Symbol of Accessibility if your polling place is accessible to voters with disabilities.
If you need help marking your ballot, you may choose up to two people to help you cast your vote as long as neither is your employer, your employer's agent, your labor union leader, or your labor union's agent.
If curbside voting is available at your polling place, you may get as close as possible to the voting area and 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, in a car, or otherwise. Contact your county elections office to determine if curbside voting is available at your polling place.
The Secretary of State produces audio and large-print versions of the Official Voter Information Guide to ensure voters who are blind or visually impaired have access to statewide ballot information. Guides are produced in English, Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, and Vietnamese. To order any version of these guides at no cost, call the Secretary of State's toll-free voter hotline at (800) 345-VOTE or visit www.sos.ca.gov.
You may also access a downloadable audio MP3 version of the Official Voter Information Guide at www.voterguide.sos.ca.gov/audio.
