Accessible voting at City Hall

While most people in King County now vote by mail, some voters with disabilities will have an easier time going to accessible voting centers equipped with assistive audio and visual technology. One of the five voting centers in the county is at Bellevue City Hall, 450 110th Ave. NE.

The Bellevue voting center, in Room 1E-121, is open at the following times:

  • Friday, Nov. 2: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • Saturday, Nov. 3: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • Monday, Nov. 5: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Nov. 6: 7 a.m. - 8 p.m.

The King County Elections division has details concerning hours and locations of the other voting centers.

Accessible voting units offer lap paddles and sip-and-puff devices, as well as audio, and large and high-contrast text options. Ballot drop boxes are also located at accessible voting centers for voters to securely return their mail ballot, without the cost of postage.

To vote at an accessible voting center you must not have returned your mail ballot. You must provide proper identification and sign the voter oath. At this point, Elections staff will credit you with voting and you will be issued a voter access card for use on the accessible voting unit. No paper ballots are issued at these locations.
