Incidentally, the model voting legislation NFB is now proposing provides
accessible voting for state as well as national races. However, here in
Washington, we are ahead of the game. Such legislation (proposed by us)
became law in 2003.

I've been using it since 2008 when I first came to Washington I am so glad
that we have it I fought for it in Oklahoma and as far as I know they
haven't gotten it yet. So everyone please take advantage of this technology

Accessible Voting

The federally required Accessible Voting Unit (AVU) is equipped with audio
and visual technology that allows voters with vision, hearing and mobility
issues to vote a truly secret ballot and to vote more independently.

Voting on the accessibility voting units will be available 20 days prior to
each election during normal office hours.  On Election Day, accessible
voting equipment is available from 7:00 AM until 8:00 PM.  If you request,
assistance will be provided when using the accessible voting unit.

The AVU will be available at the Elections Department at 1408 Franklin,
Vancouver, WA.  If you need assistance getting to our office and are not
able to use regular C-Tran buses, please contact C-Van at: (360) 695-8918 or
(TTY) (360) 695-2760.

The following links will provide you with the information you need about
accessible voting options offered in Clark County.  We strongly encourage
all citizens to vote, because voting allows you to elect the officials who
create the laws and policy that directly impact your daily life. In other
words, voting is the simplest way to make your voice heard!
