Accessible Voting

Accessibility for all

As required by the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA), Accessible Voting Units (AVUs) will be available at the Chelan County Courthouse to ensure that all voters with disabilities can vote privately and independently, if they choose.

Voters who are visually impaired or have difficulty reading can listen to the entire ballot to facilitate independent voting. Other assistive devices are also available.

For the February 14, 2017 Special Election, the Accessible Voting Units (AVUs) will be available at the Chelan County Elections Office, Level 3, during regular business hours January 27, 2017 through February 13, 2017 and on Election Day February 14, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
