Tomorrow, November 6, is Election Day, and the polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. DRO's Voter Hotline will be open the same hours at 800-282-9181. DRO staff will be available to answer your questions, and we may be able to help if you think your voting rights are being violated.

Curbside voting is available

If you want to vote at your polling location but have difficulty getting out of your car, you can request that the poll workers bring your ballot to you. When you arrive at your polling place, you must let the poll workers know you are there. You can do this by sending someone inside to tell them or by calling your county board of elections to tell them you're at your polling location and need help. They will then notify the poll workers inside. Two poll workers - one Democrat and one Republican - will come out to your car to assist you. You will still need to provide the correct identification.

Revisit our commonly asked questions about voting

Throughout this election season, DRO has published the answers to some of the most common questions we get about voting and people with disabilities. Check them out:

Am I allowed to vote if I have a guardian?
Can I get help with my ballot in the voting booth?
I have voted before. Did I have to register again to vote this time?
Can I vote if I have a criminal record?
I want to vote in person, but I need a ride to the polls. Can I get some help with transportation?
What if my disability keeps me from going to the polls?
What if I am (or my minor child is) unexpectedly hospitalized on or near Election Day?
