Accessible Vote-by-Mail Ballot

A digital vote-by-mail ballot can be sent to you directly by email. You may mark the ballot on a computer and then print it, or mark it after it has been printed.

The ballot will then need to be returned by mail or in person to the Nevada County Elections Office.

You may contact the Nevada County Elections Office to request an accessible vote-by-mail ballot.

Accessible Voting at Vote Centers

Every vote center is surveyed to confirm ADA compliance.

Each vote center has electronic voting systems with large print options and audio options in English or Spanish that read the ballot to you. Each of these units can  accommodate the use of Tactile Switches and Sip and Puff devices.
