Assistance for Voters with Disabilities
On Tuesday, November 5, 2013, the City of Phoenix will hold the regularly scheduled Runoff Election for voters in Districts 4 and 8 to elect city council members. This election is required by the City Charter and State law because no candidate for those offices received a majority of the votes cast in the August Election.
Accessible voting devices that permit voters with various disabilities to vote independently will be available for this Election. These electronic voting devices allow voters to cast a ballot using a touch screen. Voters may also vote by listening to an audio version of the ballot and using a keypad designed for the blind and visually impaired to make choices. Both the touch screen and audio versions are available in either English or Spanish.
Accessible voting equipment is available at all voting centers and at the early voting locations. Phoenix City Hall is a voting center and an early voting location. The equipment will be available at City Hall from Oct. 10 through Election Day, Nov. 5. Call the election information line at 602-261-VOTE (8683), or Teletypewriter (TTY) at 602-534-2737, for additional information.
