May someone help me vote?
Yes. When a voter declares under oath, administered by any member of the precinct board at the time the voter appears at the polling place to vote, that the voter is unable to mark a ballot, the voter shall receive the assistance of not more than two persons selected by the voter, other than the voter’s employer, an agent of the voter’s employer, or an officer or agent of the union of which the voter is a member.

It is our goal to have all of our polling places accessible to the physically handicapped. If a voter cannot get inside the polling place, the voter may request to vote curbside. A poll worker will bring a ballot and marking device outside and assist the voter in casting a ballot. Please see California Elections Code Section 14282 for further information. The California Elections Code is available at http://www.leginfo.ca.gov.
