Disabled Access Units are available in the county clerk’s office at the same time that mail ballots are sent out.  However, if you intend to use this option, you MUST surrender your mail ballot at the time that you come in to vote on the equipment.

You must contact the County Clerk’s office to find out if you will automatically receive a ballot in the mail.  Inactive voters are still eligible to vote, but they must request a ballot from the clerk’s office.
  1. What do I do if I don’t receive a ballot in the mail?
Contact the County Clerk’s office and ask if your record is active and what address we have on file for you.  Always make sure your address is updated prior to an election.  Changing your address on your driver’s license or vehicle registration does not automatically change your voter record.
