Polling Place Accessibility

We strive to get polling places that are accessible for all people. But this is not always possible.

Policies and Procedures for Selecting Polling Places

To know if your polling place is accessible:

  • Find the access symbol on the back cover of your County Voter Information Guide.
  • Look for the word YES or NO near the symbol.
    • YES means your polling place is fully accessible.
    • NO means your polling place does not meet all current accessibility requirements.
      However, alternative facilitation may make it accessible to you.

If your current polling place is not accessible, you can:

  • Request an Alternative Accessible Polling Place
    A voter who is unable to enter his/her polling place because it is inaccessible may request assignment to an accessible polling place by calling (415) 473-6439 at least 2 weeks before the election.
  • Curbside Voting
    You may request that a paper ballot be brought to you outside the polling place. The poll worker will bring you a ballot and deposit it in the ballot box after you have voted.
