A permanent disability does not have to be “major”, it can be trouble standing for a long time, hearing issues, .  Once someone is on the list, they will automatically be mailed an application for an absentee ballot each time there is an election they are registered to vote in.  They will still have to fill out the application and mail it back (one application per envelope) every time, but this can help with transportation issues.
