Accessible Community Advisory Committee (ACAC)

The Accessible Communities Act of Washington State, passed March 2010, provides counties with resources to form Accessible Community Advisory Committees (ACACs). The learn more about the ACAC visit the committee's web page here: https://www.co.benton.wa.us/pview.aspx?id=21078&catid=45

These units have been designed specially to assist voters with disabilities. Each unit has optional headphones, tactile switches, and a port for a sip-n-puff device.

Accessible Voting Options

Accessible Voting Units

Accessible Voting Units (AVU) are available beginning 20 days before every election. A easy way to remember is ballots are mailed 20 days before every election so if you have received your ballot then the AVU's are already available.
