Accessible Voting

The Department of the Secretary of State recently developed a new service for absentee balloting, with input from advocates at Disability Rights Maine, intended for voters with print disabilities. These disabilities may include: vision impairment or blindness, physical dexterity limitations, learning disabilities or cognitive impairment, all of which prevent the individual from independently marking a paper ballot. 

Should you wish to take part in this service and vote by absentee, please request for an accessible absentee ballot with the form found here or listed below.
You can also request an absentee ballot by calling 207-666-5531

In addition to the accessible absentee ballot, the State provides the Accessible Voting System ballot-marking device at every polling place on Election Day, which allows any voter to use a touchscreen or controller pad/audio to independently mark their ballot.
