Harris County Elections Administrators’ Office Request Form
Harris County Election Administrator’s Office continues to ensure every voter with a disability can vote in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As we develop more opportunities across Harris County to foster an inclusive community, we have increased effective communication accessibility to people who have vision, hearing, or speech disabilities (communication disabilities).Effective communication simply means that whatever is written or spoken must be as clear and understandable to people with disabilities as it is for people who do not have disabilities. To meet this obligation, Harris County Elections Administrator’s Office, whenever necessary, provides, free of charge, appropriate auxiliary aids and services to individuals with disabilities, including to a voter's parent, spouse, or companion. The goal is to ensure that communication with people with these disabilities is equally effective as communication with people without disabilities.
Below are some examples of auxiliary aids and services that Harris County Election Administrator’s Office provides:
- Live American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreting
- Computer-assisted Real Time Transcription (CARTT)
- Tactile sign language interpreting
- Accessible voting machines with font and contrast modification
- Audio tactile interface (ATI) device for text-to-speech function on voting machine
