Voting Assistance

Disabled Access Units

The Help America Vote Act (HAVA) requires that election authorities throughout the country have voting equipment in place for voters with disabilities to vote privately and independently.

Every polling place in the County of Peoria has at least one disabled access unit. The disable access unit is an ADA compliant booth that accommodates voters in wheelchairs. Disabled access units provide audio to accommodate voters who are blind, severely visually impaired, or have trouble reading.

Voting Assistance

If you have difficulty making selections on the eSlate™, you may request assistance from a friend, relative or 2 election judges (one from each party) in your precinct.

Under state law, both the voter and the individual(s) providing assistance must sign a legal affidavit at the polling place.

Handicapped Accessibility

All County of Peoria polling places are accessible to disabled voters, outfitted with ramps, level entrances and/or elevators.
