Assistance to Voters with Disabilities

Image Error

A voter does not need to state a reason for requesting assistance. A voter may request voting assistance from any person they choose except: the voter's employer, an agent of the voter's employer, or an officer or agent of the voter's union.

It is the voter's responsibility to notify a poll official that assistance is needed. Once a voter has requested assistance from a Poll Official then the voter will receive instructions on the procedures to follow when voting with assistance.

The AutoMark, an ADA approved ballot marking device, is available at each polling location for voters requesting the use of such equipment.

Upon request, voters who are physically disabled or over the age of 70 are permitted to move to the front of the line at a polling place.

For more information on assistance to voters with disabilities please visit the State of Alabama's Official Election Center website.
