Any elderly voter or a voter with a disability whose polling place is inaccessible may vote early by absentee ballot or at the election commission office on Election Day.

If the voter chooses to vote at the Election Commission Office on Election Day, they must complete an affidavit at the Election Commission Office not later than Saturday, October 24, 2020 stating that their designated voting location does not comply with the provisions of Public Law 98-435 of the 98th Congress.
