Speaker: Nancy Duncan, disability consultant, former Southeast ADA Center Network Administrator for the state of Georgia

Description: 

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.
