Polling Place Accessibility

  • Share on Facebook

In accordance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Voter Accessibility for the Elderly and Handicapped Act of 1984, the City of Philadelphia does not discriminate against people with disabilities in providing access to its election process.

According to these federal laws, the City of Philadelphia is required to ensure that its election process as a whole is accessible to people with disabilities in all elections. This means that polling places shall be accessible to people with disabilities to the extent that accessible locations are available within each election district.

If a fully accessible location, that meets all federal and state criteria, is not available for a polling place in your election Division, voting accessibility will be provided through the use of an Alternative Ballot in accordance with directives issued by the Secretary of the Commonwealth.

Please click here for more information on alternative ballots.

Only the following Ward and Division polling places have been designated as fully accessible.

If you are a registered voter in any election district in Philadelphia, EXCEPT for those listed below, and you are disabled or age 65 or older, you are eligible to vote from home using an alternative ballot or at City Hall Rm 142 on Election Day using an emergency alternative ballot:
