A new, expanded accessible voting center (AVC) is open in Renton to help ensure that voters with disabilities are able to cast a private and independent ballot.
The center is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays until the election on Nov. 6.
The expanded AVC is part of a new Elections Service Center (ESC) at Elections’ headquarters, opened in a recently renovated space. The ESC also features a counter for voter registration. The county expanded its services in anticipation of high volumes this presidential election.
Voting by mail is the easiest and most accessible choice for many people. However, some voters have difficulty filling out mail ballots. Accessible voting centers provide voters the opportunity to vote privately and independently using touchscreen accessible voting units (AVUs). Accessible voting units offer lap paddles, audio voting, large and high-contrast text options and more.
Accessible voting units are easy to use, and Elections staff is available to help voters.
