Assistance with Voting and Curbside Voting at the Voting Place

If you are unable to mark, read or translate your ballot, an election official, friend or relative may assist you, after making a solemn declaration to not influence you and to keep your vote secret.

If you travel to the Voting Place (Community Hall) and find it difficult to get out of your car and into the building, you may request curb side voting.  An election official will bring your ballot to you.
