Voters with Disabilities

If you prefer to vote at your polling place, options are available to you:

Curbside Voting: Voters with limited mobility can vote “curbside” or outside the polling place. Just go to your polling place and ask someone to go in and ask poll workers to bring a ballot out to you. They should bring you a ballot within a reasonable period of time. Please make sure to have an acceptable form of identification with you.

Personal Assistance: If you cannot read or write, are blind or have another physical disability and cannot vote your ballot, you may choose to bring in a person to help you vote. Your assistant does not have to be over the age of 18 or have to be a registered voter. Additionally, a bipartisan team of poll workers can assist you upon request.

Accessible Voting Systems: Every polling place must have an accessible voting system for individuals with disabilities including audiovisual accessibility. Accessible systems include an audio ballot to make your selections or the ability to enlarge text so that you can read the on-screen ballot with ease.

Accessible Polling Places: If you have physical disabilities, and your polling place is not accessible, you may request a different polling place assignment so that you may vote in a more accessible polling place. You may also vote the County Clerk’s Office. Simply contact our office at (573)642-0730 for further information.

If you prefer to vote at home:

Permanent Absentee Voting: If you have a permanent physical disability, you may request to be placed on a designated list so that our office can automatically mail an absentee ballot application directly to you prior to each election.  You may download the request form below or call our office at (573)642-0730 for further information.
