​Community Organizing: Voter Accessibility and the Voter's Choice Act

August 22, 2017

Friday, September 8, 2017
2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time
The Disability Organizing Network (DOnetwork) continues our commitment to strategizing for accessible elections and lifting up the collective voice of voters with disabilities. We will host this one-hour teleconference to explore opportunities for disabilities advocates to become part of the movement to increase election access and fight against voter suppression. This teleconference will begin by exploring how disabled activists can become part of their county Voter Accessibility Advisory Committee or help their county organize a one if it doesn’t already exist. Then we will learn about the Voter’s Choice Act (VCA), a new law in California that will implement vote centers, and how the disability community can give input for their county’s VCA election accessibility plan. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to sign up for regular DOnetwork teleconferences for VCA implementation information sharing and resources.
A confirmation email with call in number and access code will be sent 24-hours in advance to those who register on line.
