Accessibility

Some voters are entitled to assistance in GA!

Applying for Your Vote-By-Mail Ballot

  1. If the voter is physically disabled or unable to read/write, an assistant may complete the application with the voter. 
    1. A voter who is unable to read/write or disabled may receive assistance from anyone other than an employer, a union official, or a candidate (or relative or representative of the foregoing). The person helping must sign the oath on the absentee ballot application.
    2. If a voter does not speak English, an English speaker can provide them with directions so long as the voter fills out the form themselves following those directions.
  2. A family member may apply on behalf of a voter (i.e., the voter does not have to be present and sign the application), if the voter is physically disabled or temporarily living out of the county.
    1. “Family member” means mother, father, grandparent, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, spouse, son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in-law or sister-in-law over the age of 18. 
    2. If a family member is completing the application on behalf of a voter, the family member should complete, and sign section 11 of the application and section 8 of the application should be left blank.

Completing Your Vote-By-Mail Ballot

  1. A voter may receive physical help marking their ballot if the voter is unable to read English or is physically disabled. If the voter received help marking the ballot, the assistant must also sign the back of the envelope. If the voter cannot sign the envelope because of physical disability, the voter should mark the signature field. 
  2. Physically disabled voters are eligible to apply for absentee ballots for the full election cycle.
  3. The voter’s support staff can return an absentee ballot if the voter has a physical disability.

Voting In Person 

  1. Every voting location has equipment for voters with disabilities. Voters can get help voting if they are unable to sign their name or mark the ballot, use the voting equipment, or enter the voting booth without help. The voter can choose anyone to help them except their employer, their union representative, a candidate on the ballot or a relative of a candidate.
  2. Early Voting: If someone who is 75 years or older and/or disabled needs help casting an in-person absentee ballot, they may request that they be allowed to vote immediately. They could then go to the next available voting compartment or booth without having to wait in line.
  3. Election Day: Between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., each voter who is 75 years or older and/or disabled and needs help, may, after a request is made to a poll officer, vote immediately at the next available voting booth without having to wait in line.
  4. Voters who cannot read English can have someone help them. The voter can choose anyone to help them except their employer, their union representative, a candidate on the ballot or a relative of a candidate.
