Curbside Voting

If a voter is physically unable to enter the polling place, he or she may ask that an election officer bring a ballot to the entrance of the polling place or to a car parked at the curbside. After the voter marks the ballot, they will give it to the election officer, who will put it in the ballot box. Or, at the voter’s request, a companion may hand the voter a ballot and deposit it for him or her.

The law requires that each polling place must designate a parking space for curbside voting. The space must be clearly marked with a sign that indicates that the space is reserved for curbside voting. The sign should display a telephone number that a voter may call or text to request assistance from an election officer. Some polling locations may provide a button or an intercom that a voter can use to request assistance. Generally speaking, you may vote curbside during the early voting period or on Election Day.
