Voting Assistance for People with Disabilities

Short Business Description
Adaptive voting machines are available for voters with physical challenges. The law requires that your county provide polling places that are accessible to people with disabilities. Georgia’s paper-ballot voting system includes adjustments to accommodate various disabilities.

Headsets are available so you can hear your choices read to you. Large controls are available for people with limited mobility, and they can accommodate sip-and-puff devices.

Also, if you are visually impaired, you can use an app on your phone to read your ballot to you before you cast it. Before you leave the polling place, you are required to delete any photos of your ballot necessary to read it.
Qualifications to Receive Services
Any person with a disability can ask for accommodation, including registering how to vote. Persons with disabilities do not have to wait in line to vote; just tell a poll officer that you have a disability and you will be moved to the front of the line.

You can get help voting if you are unable to sign your name, unable to see or mark the ballot, operate the voting equipment, or enter the voting booth without assistance. When you arrive, you must give the poll worker the name of the person assisting you or write it on your voter certificate.

These accommodations also apply to persons who are 75 or older.
