Webinar Series: Accessibility Online
from the Great Lakes ADA Center, member of the ADA National Network

Description:

Voting is a fundamental right for everyone, including citizens with disabilities. This timely webinar will cover access to polling places, from arrival onto the site to the casting of ballots, as required under laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Help America Vote Act (HAVA). Presenters will review design requirements for accessible routes, parking, entrances, and voting equipment to ensure that polling places and the voting process are inclusive of all. This includes the Voluntary Voting Systems Guidelines (VVSG) promulgated by the Election Assistance Commission (EAC). HAVA requires that at least one voting machine in every precinct, all across the nation, be accessible to people who are blind, have low vision, or have limited hand dexterity. This webinar will include discussion and examples of the technologies used by accessible voting machines.

Speakers: Bruce Bailey, Accessibility Specialist/Information Technology Specialist, US Access Board; and Paul Beatty, Accessibility Specialist, Office of Technical and Information Services, U.S. Access Board.
