Voters who do not speak English can get help from voting.
Will I get assistance in the polling place?
National Voting Rights Act (NVRA) requires certain counties to provide assistance to people with limited English proficiency.
If the population of voting age people who speak another language reaches 5% or 10,000, then the county has to offer voting information and services in that language.
There are currently three counties in Pennsylvania should provide assistance in Spanish:
- Berks County
Can I bring someone with me to help me vote?
You can get help voting, as long as the person who helps you:
- is not your employer or union representative
is not the judge of elections
You do not need to get permission before each election to have someone help you
vote, but you may be asked to
sign a declaration
stating that you
need assistance at the polling place.
