Accessible Voting Options
Accessible Voting Units
Accessible Voting Units (AVUs) are available for voters who cannot cast a private, independent ballot by mail. AVUs are touch screen voting devices that feature large font, audio and tactile options to assist voters in casting their choices.
Voters who choose to cast a ballot on an AVU will be asked to show a photo ID or sign a declaration. When signing a declaration, election workers are required to match that signature to the signature on file in the voter registration system
We encourage you to plan your trip to an accessible voting site early to avoid lines on Election Day.
In addition to the availability of Accessible Voting Units, Snohomish County provides an online, markable ballot through the Washington Secretary of State’s myVote Application. To access the online, markable ballot, visit www.myvote.wa.gov.
Snohomish County Elections operates twelve 24-hour ballot drop boxes where voters can return their ballot without postage. Please visit our ballot drop box page for locations and addresses.
