Accessible Voting Centers Now Open in Seattle, Bellevue, and Tukwila!

King County now votes entirely by mail, and it’s important that voters who need assistance know their options. King County operates three accessible voting centers designed for voters who need assistance casting their ballot.

Each center is operated by trained staff and offers equipment to make voting accessible for everyone. The touch screen accessible voting unit has lap paddle and sip-and-puff devices, and audio option, and large and high contrast front features to aid voters.

How do you plan to cast your ballot? If you are interested in using an accessible voting unit, plan your trip now. King County’s accessible voting centers are located at the Elections office in Tukwila, Union Station in Seattle, and Bellevue City Hall. Locations are accessible by public transportation and parking is available.
