for Voters with Disabilities:
|Assistance for Voters:
||Voters with disabilities or voters who
need assistance in casting a ballot can request assistance by notifying the
Inspector or Chief Clerk, or any assistant clerk at the voting center. Each
voter is presumed to be able to cast his or her ballot in secret without the
need for assistance. Poll officials will not assume that any voter needs
assistance in casting a ballot.
The options for assistance will be provided at the polls, including assistance from a qualified person and/or the use of the ADA ballot marking device. It is the responsibility of the voter, however, to inform election officials at the polls that assistance is needed and is specifically requested. Once this is done, the options available and procedures to follow may be further discussed with the voter and the poll official.
An election center official shall allow any voter who is mobility disabled or over the age of 70, who so requests, to move to the front of the line at the polling place. (Ala. Act 2015-288)
