Oregon has worked to improve the voting experience for voters with disabilities.
Voters with disabilities have options:
- Use a screen reader and other technology to access a ballot at home using My Vote. Voters with no or limited vision can use any screen reader to have their ballot and the Voters’ Pamphlets read to them. This option requires printing, signing and returning the ballot.
- Call your county elections office and ask for assistance. Assistance can be provided in the Elections office or in the voter’s home by a bipartisan team of election workers to assist the voter in the process of reading and marking the ballot. Or if requested, election workers will bring an electronic tablet and a portable printer to the voter’s home so the voter can vote privately and independently. The tablets can accommodate multiple disabilities.
Please call Multnomah County Elections Division at 503.988.3720 if you have any questions.
