Voting Independently

Voting Independently

Every polling location in the State of Nevada is required to have at least one designated voting booth that is accessible for elderly persons or persons with a disability. This includes ample room for wheelchair access as well as voting equipment that ensures maximum privacy and the right of all citizens to vote with independence and dignity. Nevada's ADA compliant voting machines are equipped with mechanical audio units as well as "sip and puff" capabilities. All voting machines have large print/zoom capabilities and alternatively each polling place has screen magnifiers for those who would prefer to use the magnifiers versus the built in zoom function.

When you arrive at your polling location, please let a poll worker know if you would like use the ADA compliant voting booth and voting machine. Please allow for extra time because while these machines allow a person to vote independently, they may require additional set-up time.

Any registered voter who is unable to mark a ballot or use any voting device independently because of a disability is entitled to assistance from a consenting person of his/her own choice (Please note that past or present employers or union representatives may not provide such assistance).

To find out more about accessible voting and your polling location, please contact your county clerk/registrar prior to visiting your polling location.
