Accessible Voting Options

Accessible Voting Units

Accessible Voting Units (AVUs) are available for voters who cannot cast a private, independent ballot by mail. AVUs are touch screen voting devices that feature large font, audio and tactile options to assist voters in casting their choices.

Voted AVU ballots are printed and inserted into an envelope just like any other ballot. The voter will sign the oath on the envelope and the signature will be compared to the voter’s record. Voters unable to sign their name will make their mark in front of two witnesses.

We encourage you to plan your trip to an accessible voting site early to avoid lines on Election Day.

Accessible Ballots

In addition to the availability of Accessible Voting Units, Snohomish County provides an online, markable ballot through the Washington Secretary of State’s VoteWa Application. To access the online, markable ballot, visit the VoteWa website.

Accessibility Advisory Committee

Snohomish County Elections has established an Accessible Voting Advisory Committee to create a plan that ensures voters of all abilities are able to vote privately and securely. The 2018 plan - Improving the Accessibility of Elections for Voters with Disabilities (PDF) - is now available.

This committee meets at least once per year to provide recommendations on the voting processes for voters with disabilities. If you would like to join the Accessibility Advisory Committee, please contact Duncan Clauson at 425-388-3694 or by email.
