​Assistance for Voters with Disabilities

On Tuesday, August 29, 2017, the City of Phoenix will hold the regularly scheduled Council Election in which voters residing in the City of Phoenix, Council Districts 2, 4, 6 and 8 will elect Councilmembers. There is no election for Mayor or Councilmembers in Districts 1, 3, 5, and 7 because the terms for Councilmembers are staggered.

Accessible voting devices that permit voters with 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. The touch screen and audio versions are both available in English and Spanish. 

Accessible voting equipment is available at all voting centers and during in-person early voting. For individuals who wish to vote early in person rather than by mail, early voting is available during business hours at Phoenix City Hall, 200 West Washington Street, 15th floor from Wednesday, August 2 through Friday, August 25.  All voting centers will have accessible voting equipment and will be open on Saturday, August 26, Monday, August 28, and Election Day, Tuesday, August 29. For additional information, call the City Clerk Department, Records and Elections Division, at 602-261-VOTE (8683) or use the 7-1-1 Relay System.
