Accessible Voting Options
At the polling site
If you vote at a polling site, to check polling site accessibility, look for the wheelchair symbol on the back cover of this book next to your polling place location. In some polling sites, temporary signage, cones, and door props, are used to improve access to the facility.
If your polling site is not accessible, you may vote from a nearby accessible location, including a car. A poll worker will qualify you to vote and return the voted ballot to the polling site. To request curbside voting assistance, you may call 1-877-458-0501, in advance, to coordinate a time and place, or have an assistant make the request inside the polling site for you.
Accessible voting system
Each polling site has a touch screen ballot marking device available in either English or Spanish language. The system has an audio option that can read the ballot to you, and can magnify the words on the screen to make it easier to read. Additional accessibility features include accessible tactile interface (ATI), which allows personal assistive devices such as sip-n-puff, or paddle switches.
A ride to your polling site
The Colusa County Transit will provide free rides on Election Day during their normal hours of operation. Transit provides service Monday – Friday. All vehicles are ADA compliant and transit runs approximately between the hours of 7:30 am to 4:30pm. Call 458-0BUS (458-0287) for scheduling and more information.
Ballot delivery to your home
