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. These options include:
- Vote by Mail: Your ballot has automatically been sent to you. Keep it safe and return your ballot by mail, drop box, or polling place.
- Voting at a Polling Place: You can go to your assigned polling place on Election Day.
- Accessible ballot-marking machines (ICX) are available at every polling place on Election Day and at the County Clerk-Recorder offices beginning 29 days prior to the election.
- 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 Polling Place Lookup to access.
Remote Accessible Vote-by-Mail
A remotely accessible vote by mail voting experience can be provided by the elections staff for all 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 return it by mail to the Elections Office.
