Your Federal Voting Rights

As a Voter with a Disability, you have the right to:

  • Vote privately and independently
  • Have an accessible polling place with voting machines for voters with disabilities

You may either:

1. Seek assistance from workers at the polling place who have been trained to use the accessible voting machine, or

2. Bring someone to help you vote

You may request your local election officials to tell you about any voting aids, voting assistance, and absentee ballot procedures that are available.

Ensure your right to accessible elections!
