Mark your calendar and join this month’s informative discussion on Voting Accessibility on Wednesday - March 5, 2014 from 1:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. (Eastern). Voting is a fundamental right. In 2002, President George W. Bush signed into law the Help America Vote Act (HAVA). This legislation is aimed at improving the general election process and sets forth new requirements for state election officials to follow. This episode will focus on the requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and HAVA to make polling places accessible to people with disabilities. We will discuss accessible registration, effective communication, and voting aids for people with disabilities.
SPEAKER: Nancy Duncan, disability consultant and former Southeast ADA Center Network Administrator for state of Georgia
