Voting Accessibility

Large Print Voting Instructions

All voting instructions at the polls are printed in large type.

Curbside Voting

If you cannot get into the polling place because of a disability, two precinct workers will bring a ballot to your vehicle. They may also help you mark the ballot, but only if you ask them. You don't have to tell anyone ahead of time that you will need to vote in your car. But, you may want to call ahead or bring someone with you to tell the precinct workers that you need to vote in your car.

Our state and county election officials are working to make voting accessible to everyone. If you have questions or concerns about voting accessibility, contact your county auditor (see page 11 for a list of the addresses and phone number) or the Office of the Secretary of State, Elections Division at (515)281-5865 voice or TDD, or 1-888-SOS-VOTE or write to:
