Voters with Disabilities
Elections BC is committed to improving accessibility to the electoral process for all eligible voters in B.C. Election officials are trained on how to help voters with accessibility challenges, and services are available to help voters with disabilities vote.
Getting help marking your ballot
Voters can get help marking their ballot if they have a disability or difficulty reading or writing. Tell the election official at the voting place if you need help marking your ballot.
Resources for blind or sight-impaired voters
Braille candidate lists, large print ballot posters and plastic ballot templates are available at all voting places to help blind or sight-impaired voters mark their ballot.
Elections BC recently made election ballots bigger to make them easier to read.
Voting place accessibility
All advance voting places and many general voting places are wheelchair accessible. Voters who can’t enter a voting place can vote outside the building (at the curb or in the parking lot).
