Accessible Polling Places
The Division of Elections conducts surveys of statewide polling places to check for ADA compliance. We make every effort to ensure polling places are accessible to all Alaskans.
This sometimes includes temporary solutions, such as portable ramps, door knob converters, ballot call doorbells for those who need assistance gaining entry to the polling place, and temporary van-accessible parking spots.
Inside the polling place, the Division of Elections provides magnifying viewers for the visually impaired and touch screen voting units equipped with magnified text and audio ballots.
The Division of Elections provides registrar training and/or voter outreach to a variety of community agencies, such as the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Access Alaska, Southeast Alaska Independent Living and Alaska State Independent Living Council.
