Assistance for Voters with Disabilities

Voting at a Polling Place or Vote Center

California polling places and vote centers provide voters with disabilities the opportunity to vote their ballot privately and independently. All voting locations are surveyed in advance to ensure they are accessible to voters with disabilities. All voting locations provide:

  • Accessible voting technology available to all voters
  • Designated accessible parking as close to the voting area as possible
  • Curbside voting

Curbside voting allows voters with disabilities to park their vehicle close to the voting area and vote from their vehicle. Elections workers will bring out a roster to sign, a ballot, and any other voting materials needed. Look for a posted number at your polling location to contact election workers to let them know you require assistance or contact your county elections office.

Vote center counties have "More Days, More Ways to Vote" by allowing voters to vote at any vote center location in the county up to 10 days before Election Day. Voters in all counties can also vote in their county elections office between October 10 through Election Day.

Voting at Home

Voters with disabilities can also vote independently at home using remote accessible vote-by-mail (RAVBM) systems. RAVBM systems allow voters to receive their ballots electronically and mark them independently and privately before mailing them back to elections officials. RAVBM ballots can also be dropped at any ballot drop box location or county elections office. Contact your county elections official for more information.
