What is this service?
San Luis Obispo County offers voters with disabilities options that provide for a private and independent voting environment. The San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder wants to help you create a voting method that works for you. See your options below.
- Vote by Mail: You ballot has automatically been sent to you. Keep safe and return your ballot by mail, drop box, or Voter Service Center.
- Voting at a Voter Service Center: You can go to any Voter Service Center from October 31 to November 3. The locations can be found on our website.
- Accessible ballot-marking machines (ICX) are available at every Voter Service Center for four days of voting and at the County Clerk-Recorder office 29 days prior to the election for early voting.
- Curbside voting: If you arrive at a Voter Service Center and cannot get to the voting area, ask for assistance.
- Accessible Voter Information Guide on the Web: Sample Ballot and Voter Information Guides are available on the Clerk-Recorder’s website with the use of personal accessible navigational tools and screen reader technology. Use our Voting Precinct Lookup to access.
Remote Accessible Vote by Mail
A new voting experience can be provided by the elections staff for all Vote By Mail voters, including those with disabilities by using web-based tools on a personal computer, printer, and one’s personal assistive device(s) (screen readers, tactile switches, closed captioning, sip and puff system, etc.) to access and mark one’s ballot, then returning it by mail to the Elections Office.
