Special Election Boards

Maricopa County voters with a confining illness or disability can request voter support from Special Election Boards. These Boards can help voters cast a ballot at home, in the hospital or a location that’s convenient for the voter. Residents may also request voter registration support. Special Election Boards are made up of two members from differing political parties who are trained to support voters in a secure, confidential and accessible manner.
