Information for Voters with Disabilities

Below are some options that voters with disabilities have to cast a ballot securely and secretly, but your county may offer additional options. Please contact your county clerk’s office for more information.


(1)  Vote by mail

If you receive a mail ballot for the Primary Election, you must postmark your ballot on or before November 2, 2020 (the day before Election Day). You can also drop your ballot off at a drop box location before 8:00 pm on Election Day. Find drop box locations near you.


(2) Vote via email or fax

Utah law allows voters with disabilities to send and receive ballots via email or fax.  You may request an email or fax ballot by submitting a paper application (link to paper application).  Your application must be received by your county clerk by Friday, October 23, 2020.

Utah County is currently conducting a pilot project that allows voters with disabilities to cast their vote using a smartphone app. If you are registered to vote in Utah County, contact the county clerk’s office for more information.


(3) Vote at an early voting location or Election Day voting location

Polling locations have voting machines that offer accommodations for voters who have visual or hearing impairments.  If you would like to use an accessible voting machine, inform a poll worker when you arrive. If you would like assistance while voting, you may ask a poll worker or choose any individual to assist you except for your employer, a trade union representative, or a candidate.
