when this is implemented the voter would need to contact their county clerk
or elections department as is presently the procedure for military or
overseas voters to make the necessary arrangements.

So my question is how does one go about getting email ballots or rather
how do you get the accessible ballots? Do they send a web address to
fill one out online? In' interested to know more. As of now, I've been
using family members to help me out with voting and I've been kind of
skeptical about the machines and how trained the staff are in using them
at my local polling place in Concord, CA so the other option to fill it
out accessibly online is greatly welcomed and intriguing to me
personally. I guess I'd like to know not only the how to of getting such
an option, but how generally it would work.
