Polling Place Accessibility

Polling places should be fully accessible to elderly voters and voters with disabilities. This includes clearly marked accessible doors, curb cuts or ramps where necessary, and at least one parking space for persons with disabilities near the accessible entrance.

Voters that cannot enter the polling place may ask an election judge to bring a ballot to their vehicle. Two election judges (poll workers) from different parties will bring voting materials to the voter.

Cities and towns are responsible for selecting polling place locations. If there are accessibility issues at a polling place, voters should notify their city or town clerk.

Voters can watch an introduction to voting video series that demonstrate the use of accessible voting equipment such as the AutoMark, and what Minnesotans, including voters with disabilities, can expect on Election Day. The series is accessible through American Sign Language (ASL), captions and voiceovers. Text and Microsoft Word transcripts of audio content with video descriptions are also included.
