Voters with Physical Disabilities
The Shelby County Election Commission is committed to providing accessible polling places. All polling places in Shelby County have been surveyed and are accessible to those with disabilities. However, we are guests in our polling places, so it is possible that the owners of the facilities have modified their building or changed our access after we surveyed the location. If you have concerns about a polling place, please call our Operations Department at 901-222-6819.
The ballot font size can be increased on every voting machine. In addition, the voting machines may be programmed to read the ballot to the voter. All polling places have a variety of assistive aids for voters with disabilities.
Voters who need assistance should ask any poll worker; they will be happy to help.
On Election Day, the Election Commission Help Desk has workers who speak fluent Spanish. Each polling place has signage in Spanish that tells voters how to reach the Help Desk. Other language assistance is available.
