What if I require assistance when voting on Election Day?

All voters, including voters with disabilities, have access to a Voter Assist Terminal (VAT) in all polling places. The Voter Assist Terminal helps the voter mark a ballot with their desired selection. It will mark the ballot with the voter’s choices but will not tally the vote. Once the ballot is marked, it is to be inserted inside the tabulator, just the same as a regular ballot would be, and is counted in the same manner.

Voters also have the right to assistance from the election officials. You can ask the election officials for instructions on how to use the voting equipment or assistance at any time, even after you’ve entered the voting booth. 

If you are blind, disabled, or unable to read or write, you have the right to assistance from anyone you choose. However, the person cannot be your employer, an agent of your employer, or an officer or agent of your labor union.
