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
Contact your municipal clerk or recorder to see if your municipality is holding a vote by-mail election. If it is not, then you may request a mail ballot. Click on this link for more information on requesting a mail ballot.
To make sure that your ballot counts, postmark your ballot by August 12, 2019 (the day before the election). 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 local election official.
(2) Vote at a polling location
Polling locations have voting machines that offer accommodations for voters who have visual or hearing impairments. When you arrive at a polling location, inform a poll worker that you prefer to use a voting machine. If you need assistance while voting, you may 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 August 6, 2019.
