Voter Assistance

Washington County Elections Division is committed to making voting more accessible to people with disabilities. To access these services, please make an appointment early in the election cycle.

Our goal is to provide the opportunity for all voters in Oregon to vote as privately and independently as possible.

Voters with Disabilities

The Election Division has staff to provide assistance to voters with disabilities. The assistance provided could include reading the ballot to the voter, reading the Voters' Pamphlet to the voter, or helping the voter to mark their ballot.

If you would like assistance with your ballot contact the Elections Division to make an appointment. Please make an appointment early in the election cycle because the last few days before an election are typically busy and there may be a longer wait.

Alternate Format Ballots (AFB)

For voters unable to use a standard ballot the Elections Division offers Alternate Format Ballots (AFB). The AFB lets voters with disabilities (e.g. vision impairment) vote privately and independently at home.

We offer two types of Alternate Format Ballots (AFB):

Font Comparison
Standard Ballot Versus Large Print Ballot
Left: Standard Ballot
Right: Large Print Ballot
  1. Large Print Ballot
    The Large Print Ballot for those who have visual difficulties reading the print on a standard ballot. To request a large print ballot, please call our office at 503-846-5800 or email us at [email protected].
  2. Online Ballot Marking Tool
    Voters access the Online Ballot Marking Tool through the Secretary of State’s MyVote page . Please note that you will still need to print out your ballot and return it in the official signature return envelope provided to you by the county.

Attestation Forms

If a voter has difficulty signing their ballot because of a temporary or permanent situation, there is the option of completing a SEL540 Signature Attestation Form. The SEL540 Signature Attestation Form allows voters to use a signature stamp or any other signature indication mark to represent the voter's signature.

When submitting a SEL540 Signature Attestation Form please complete a new SEL500 Voter Registration form, with voters new mark. For more information about the Attestation form please contact the Elections Division.
