The Secretary of State's Statewide Voting Accessibility Advisory Committee (VAAC) is designed to advise, assist, and provide recommendations to the Secretary of State's office as to how voters with disabilities can vote independently and privately.
The State's VAAC members have been influential in assisting with numerous projects related to accessibility.
Meetings are held regularly, and members of the public are welcome to join via phone, on the web, or in person.
There are a lot of opportunities to get involved in the elections process. You could sign-up to be a pollworker on Election Day, or you could volunteer to host a voter registration drive. You could even just download and print out some outreach materials to pass around your work, school, or community.
For each election, the Secretary of State asks voters with disabilities to participate in a brief and private survey. Survey results help identify whether there is a need for more training, modified services, or enhanced outreach programs for voters with disabilities.
The next survey period will be announced close to the November 8, 2016, General Election.
To be alerted when the survey is available, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
