Due to a new law, anyone providing assistance to a voter — either with voting by mail or in person — must fill out a designated form (which will either be included with the mail ballot or provided at the polling place) indicating that they are not being compensated for providing assistance and must also sign an oath.
- If you cannot read/write English, you have the right to bring someone into the voting booth with you to help you. You can bring anyone except your employer, an agent of your employer, or an officer or agent of your labor union.
- Your ballot should be written in Spanish as well as English. In some areas, the ballot may be available in other languages as well.
- Other voting materials and instructions should be posted in Spanish as well. If you do not see them, simply request those from the worker when you check-in.
- If you prefer to communicate in Spanish and your polling place doesn’t have a worker who speaks Spanish, call 844-TX-VOTES to let us know so we can try to get a Spanish-speaking worker there next election.
Access for Individuals with Disabilities:
- If you have a disability, you have the right to bring someone into the voting booth with you to help you. You can bring anyone except your employer, an agent of your employer, or an officer or agent of your labor union. Or you can request assistance from the election officials.
- Your polling place should be physically accessible and have accessible equipment that allows you to vote privately and independently.
- If you are physically unable to enter the polling place, you have the right to vote curbside.
- You can ask an election worker to bring you a ballot or voting machine (depending on what is in use at your polling place) to the entrance of the polling place or to a car parked at the curbside.
- If someone has accompanied you to the polling place, they can go inside and let the poll worker know there is a curbside voter outside. Or you may need to flag down another voter who is entering the polling place and ask them to tell the poll worker you’re outside waiting to curbside vote.
- If no one comes out to allow you to curbside vote, please call 844-TX-VOTES and we can assist you.
- For your own safety and the safety of others, we encourage all voters to wear a mask or face covering if they can.
- If you are concerned you might have COVID-19, please consider using curbside voting or asking the election workers to allow you to vote immediately upon arrival at the polling location to limit your contact with other voters.
- If you have questions or would like to report a problem, please call 844-TX-VOTES for assistance in English or Spanish.
- Non-partisan organizations also provide assistance in other languages:
- For Asian Languages, call 888-API-VOTE.
- For Arabic, call 844-YALLA-US.
- For American Sign Language (video call), call 301-818-VOTE.
