Electors with disabilities

You are legally required to accommodate electors with physical, mental and developmental disabilities and serve them in a way that most respects their dignity.

Note: service dogs are allowed inside the polling place

Face the elector and speak calmly. Even if they have a hearing impairment, your natural facial expressions, gestures and body movements will help them understand.

If you see an elector who might need help

  1. Ask them politely if there is anything you can do to help
  2. Listen carefully to what they say and be patient
  3. Do whatever it is they ask you to do to assist them
