Election Day 2016 marks the tenth year in which voters with disabilities have been able to cast a ballot using accessible voting terminals. How well are they working in Massachusetts? How well are they working in your polling place?
The legislative committee and board of the Bay State Council of the Blind are conducting a brief, online survey of voters with all types of disabilities who used, or attempted to use, an accessible terminal to cast a ballot during the November elections. The goal is to hear from voters in as many polling places as possible throughout the Commonwealth. The BSCB will give the survey results to the Elections Division in order to improve the voting experience in future elections.
The link will be active until November 18th, so please circulate it within your networks! Please note that the National Federation of the Blind is also conducting a voting survey. The NFB survey is a separate and important initiative with a slightly different focus. Blind voters may participate in both.
We encourage everyone to participate in the election and vote for the candidate of their choice.
MAB has been creating opportunities for individuals with disabilities since 1903. Our experience allows us to forge strong community partnerships to meet the pressing need for high quality services and transform lives.
