Assistance for Voters with Disabilities
On Tuesday, August 27, 2013, the City of Phoenix will hold the regularly scheduled Council Election for voters in Districts 2, 4, 6, and 8 to elect city council members. There is no election for council members in Council Districts 1, 3, 5 or 7 this year because the terms of the city council members are staggered.
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 Aug. 1 through Election Day, Aug. 27. Call the election information line at 602-261-VOTE (8683), or Teletypewriter (TTY) at 602-534-2737, for additional information.
