Voting with a disability in NC
People who have visual, physical, cognitive, or mental disabilities have a right to vote, protected by federal and state law.
You have the right to receive assistance when you are voting, but a poll worker is not allowed to offer assistance – you have to ask for it. If you have a disability or difficulty reading (due to language ability, vision, etc.), you can ask for assistance from any person of your choice, except not an agent of your employer or union.
You can also remain in a car and vote from the curbside of the polling place if you would have difficulty going inside, due to your age or a physical disability. A poll worker will bring the ballot to you.
You may want to contact your County Board of Elections and ask them about the accessibility of your polling place or an Early Voting location. You have the right to request another permanent polling place in advance of the election if yours is inaccessible.
You may also choose to vote by mail (absentee). Find instructions on how to vote by mail and what to do if you need assistance here.
