One of the most important mandates of the Town of Huntsville is to ensure that elections are accessible to all.

The use of Internet and Telephone Voting provides the most accessible access to the electoral process as it eliminates the need for electors to attend a polling station and provides for an extended period of time to participate in the election process. Any questions or comments regarding accessibility should be directed to the Clerk.

Accessibility plan

The Clerk is required to prepare a plan regarding the identification, removal, and prevention of barriers that affect electors and candidates with disabilities and make the plan available to the public in advance of the voting period.

Voting method

Internet and telephone voting was selected to ensure that all voters have an extensive and equal opportunity to cast their vote using an accessible and convenient method.

Persons with disabilities will be able to cast their vote without having to travel, but in the comfort and convenience of their own home thereby providing the principles of independence and equality of opportunity.
