The Help America Vote Act (HAVA) requires that election authorities throughout the country have voting equipment in place for voters with disabilities to vote privately and independently.
Every polling place in the City of Peoria has at least one disabled access unit. The disable access unit is an ADA compliant booth that accommodates voters in wheelchairs. Disabled access units provide audio in English and Spanish to accommodate voters who are blind, severely visually impaired, or have trouble reading. The units also have jelly switches to accommodate voters with mobility issues.
Voting Assistance If you have difficulty making selections on the eSlate™, you may request assistance from a friend, relative or two election judges (one from each party) in your precinct.
Under state law, both the voter and the individual(s) providing assistance must sign a legal affidavit at the polling place.
All City of Peoria polling places are accessible to disabled voters, outfitted with ramps, level entrances and/or elevators.
