All polling places must be accessible. The City and the State audit our polling places for accessibility. Poll workers use an accessibility checklist to identify and address barriers .

Voters with health issues, mobility issues, or a disability may vote curbside. Have someone tell poll workers that you are a curbside voter. Or call the Clerk’s Office at (608) 266-4601.

Poll workers check you into the poll book and announce that you are receiving your ballot at the curb. Two poll workers bring you a ballot, marking pen, and secrecy sleeve. After you mark your ballot, poll workers bring it back into the polling place. They insert your ballot into the tabulator to be counted.

Voters unable to sign the poll book due to a disability are exempt from signing. Voters unable to state their name and address at the poll book may choose someone to do so on their behalf.

If you need help marking your ballot, you have options:

  1. Bring someone to assist you in marking your ballot. They cannot be your employer or labor union representative. The person assisting you does not need to be eligible to vote. Poll workers will document the name and address of your assistant. Your assistant needs to sign the ballot.
  2. Use the ExpressVote ballot marking device. This marks your ballot with selections you make on a touchscreen or Braille keypad. The ExpressVote offers large print and high contrast. It has headphones. It is compatible with sip & puff devices. You can double-check your selections before your ballot prints. The same tabulator that counts ballots marked by pen also counts ExpressVote ballots.
  3. Ask a poll worker to help you mark your ballot.
