How do you accommodate voters with disabilities?
Only 1 polling location, Ward 3, which votes at City Hall, does not have direct access into the polling room and is on a different level than where you enter the building. Voters are required to use either stairs or the elevator to get to the polling room on the 5th floor. The elevator can be accessed directly from the side entrance to City Hall (Rogers House side of building). It can also be accessed from the front entrance lobby; however, the voter must climb the front steps of City Hall if using that entrance. An election greeter will be located in front of City Hall to help direct voters to the polling room.

All polling locations have wheelchair-accessible voting booths, space available at tables in the room and the “One4All Accessible Voting System.” This system utilizes a tablet, headphones, and a printer to assist voters who are hearing or visually impaired. This booth is also large enough to accommodate a wheelchair.

If you require assistance at any time, please ask an Election Official for help. He or she will not be able to answer questions about or discuss the individual candidates, but they can assist you in filling out your ballot at your direction. Voters with a disability can also bring someone to assist them; they do not have to have an Election Official assist them. (The exception is the person assisting can’t be the voter’s employer or union representative.) Anyone who is assisting the voter must take an oath.
