Many proce- dures and safeguards are in place to insure that all eligible voters can exercise their consti- tutional right to cast ballots. Any properly registered dis- abled voter may elect to vote by absentee ballot. The established deadline for this procedure is the last Saturday prior to the Tues- day election. For the forthcoming election, that will be Saturday, November 3. The Circuit Clerks office in the Greenbrier County Courthouse, where absentee bal- lots are cast, will be open on Saturday morning from 8:30 a.m. until noon to accommodate absentee voters. Accessibility may be difficult in some precincts. Recent data from West Virginia Secretary of State Ken Heckler advises that 68% of West Virginia polling places are fully accessible. This is reportedly about 10% below the national average. Individuals with mobility limitations may apply at the County Clerk's Of- fice to vote at another precinct which is accessible. This, how- ever, must be done 30 days prior to tile election. As an alternate procedure, the handicapped voter may present at any polling place within his/her district and vote a challenged ballot. Upon reconciliation of voter records, the ballot will likely be counted. Individuals with visual or physical hnpairments who re- quire assistance in the voting process may designate an aide. The aide cannot be a present or former employer or agent of such employer and cannot be a mem- ber or agent of the voter's labor union. Any such aide must also complete an affidavit acceptable to the precinct poll clerks. For additional information, or to address specific circum- stances, you may call Mr Spence at 645-2373.
