Vote Center and Ballot Drop Box Accessibility

Vote Center and Ballot Drop Box Accessibility

Every effort has been made to ensure all Vote Centers and ballot drop boxes meet accessibility standards.  Vote Centers and ballot drop boxes that do not meet these requirements are noted on our website and in the voter information guide.  Drive-thru only ballot drop boxes have posted signage with the address of the closest accessible ballot drop box location.

Ballot Marking Devices 

All Orange County Vote Centers will have a minimum of three accessible ballot marking devices.  
With a ballot marking device, a voter will be able to mark their ballot using the touch screen display, audio-tactile device, or their own assistive technology. The ballot marking device provides voters a private and independent voting experience. 

Assistance Available at Vote Centers

All Vote Centers will feature:
•    Accessible voting machines to mark your ballot
•    American Sign Language interpreter via video conferencing
•    Curbside voting with a paper ballot
•    Additional assistance upon request
•    Voters that are unable to mark a ballot may bring up to two individuals to assist in voting
