“The Right to Vote: Access for People with Disabilities” Audio Conference

The Great Lakes ADA Center in collaboration with the ADA National Network invites you to attend the October ADA Audio Conference Series session titled “The Right to Vote: Access for People with Disabilities” featuring Michelle Bishop, Voting Rights Specialist, National Disability Rights Network.

This session will address questions and issues brought forth by the disability community in terms of accessibility to the voting process. As the 2018 mid-term election approaches, the question asked by people with disabilities will not be “Who won” but rather “WAS I ABLE TO CAST A BALLOT?” This session will examine the status of accessibility of the voting process for people with disabilities. Join us as our speaker provides information on laws applying to voting including the requirements of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) and what steps folks can take if barriers are encountered on Election Day.

Date: October 16, 2018
Time: 2-3:30pm Eastern Time (calculate the time zone where you will join from)
