Information for Voters with Disabilities
Utah is committed to provide accessibility for all voters. Voters who have a disability have several options to vote:
(1) Vote by mail
If you receive a mail ballot for the Presidential Primary Election, you must postmark your ballot by March 2, 2020 (the day before the election) for your ballot to count. If you forget, you can drop your ballot off at a polling location, drop box, or your local election official’s office before 8:00 p.m. on Election Day. If you have questions regarding your ballot, please contact your county clerk’s office.
(2) Vote at a polling 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.
(3) 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 February 25, 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.
