Voting at accessible voting centers
Voting by mail is the easiest and most accessible choice for many people. However, some voters have difficulty filling out mail ballots. Accessible voting centers provide voters the opportunity to vote privately and independently using an accessible voting unit. Accessible voting units are easy to use, and Elections staff are available to assist voters.
Accessible voting units offer lap paddles and sip-and-puff devices, as well as audio, and large and high-contrast text options.
These locations are open to all voters. Ballot drop boxes are also located at accessible voting centers for voters to securely return their mail ballot, without the cost of postage.
Voters casting a ballot at an accessible voting center must either show a photo ID or sign a declaration. The signature on the declaration must match the signature in the voter registration record. RCW 29A.40.160
