Alternative Format Ballots
Visually impaired voters can now navigate to their county elections website and log in to access their current voter status and record. There, they can access the Alternate Format Ballot, a fillable form with check boxes they can complete using assistive technology such as a screen reader or iPhone's VoiceOver.
Accessible voting permits Oregon voters to participate in the electoral process, casting a confidential ballot indepently and wihout the assistance of others.

Trust That Your Vote Counts!
Track the status of your mail-in ballot from printed to accepted with this accessible and free process. Four Oregon counties have Ballot Tracking: Multnomah, Marion, Washington, and Yamhill.
The voter provides full name, date of birth, zip code, and desired notification method. The CAPTCHA system used to ensure your response is human (and not an online robot) is a simple and accessible check mark. If there is a problem with your signature, you will be notified within a day. The percentage of successful voters with Ballot Tracking is very high, and anyone can help a voter get signed up!
