Voters with Special Needs in Texas

On September 1, 1999, Texas became the first state to require that all new voting systems be accessible to voters with disabilities and provide a practical and effective means for voters with disabilities to cast a secret ballot. In every federal election, and most nonfederal elections, every polling place in Texas must now provide at least one voting machine that offers headphones or other assistance to allow many voters with disabilities to vote privately and independently. In certain nonfederal elections held in counties with a population of less than 20,000, accessible machines may not be available at every polling place. To determine if accessible machines will be available or to request an accommodation, contact the early voting clerk of the county or political subdivision holding the election at least 21 days before the election.
