Mail-in Ballots Being Made Easier for Illinoisans With Disabilities

(IOCI RADIO) – The Illinois State Board of Elections is launching a new effort to make it easier for those with disabilities to cast a mail-in ballot.

The blind, visually impaired, or deaf-blind can now request a special ballot to vote privately in their own home without assistance, Elections Spokesperson Matt Dietrich said.

Voters will then print out that ballot and send it back using the special envelope provided.

The option is available for the June 28 primary. Anyone interested should contact their local election authority.
