A Message from Wright County Elections staff:
Wright County Elections are Accessible
In Wright County it is our goal to ensure that all eligible voters can cast their ballots securely and independently. To that end, we offer several services that make voting more accessible for all of our voters. These services are available on Election Day and at the Wright County Government Center during the early voting period, which is happening now through Election Day. If you would like to vote early, the Wright County Government Center is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Voting is in done in Conference Room 1103.
Curbside voting is available to any voter who has difficulty entering the polling place. Whether you have COVID-19 or if it is difficult for you to enter the polling place, Wright County election judges will be available to allow you to vote early in-person at the Government Center from your car. If you would like to vote curbside at the Government Center, pull into the designated curbside parking spot near the front door and call the phone number listed on the sign. Our election judges will come out and guide you through the process.
OmniBallot Assistive Voting Device
The OmniBallot is a device available for use by all voters in the county. The OmniBallot has several features which allow voters with disabilities to mark their ballots independently and privately. Voters place their ballots in the OmniBallot printer tray while they make their selections on the tablet screen. The tablet can read the text of the ballot to voters. It can also enlarge the text to make it easier to read the information on the ballot. Once selections are made the OmniBallot will print the voter’s selections onto the ballot and the voter is then able to cast the ballot into the ballot box.
For more questions about accessible voting, please contact Elections Manager Tyler Webster at (763) 684-2392.
