THE NEW ACCESSIBLE POLLING PLACE LOCATIONS AND EQUIPMENT CLASS

In 2018 we debuted a new class dedicated to all aspects of polling place accessibility. It’s called Accessible Polling Place Locations and Equipment (APPLE) and covers:

  • How our office surveys sites for compliance with federal and state accessibility standards;
  • Using items, such as ramps and signs to make polling places accessible;
  • Creating a welcoming environment for all voters;
  • Setting up and using a ballot marking device with accessible features; and
  • Identifying potential accessibility issues on Election Day.

We’re hearing great things from attendees!

If you’re a current poll worker, sign up for an APPLE class through your worker portal.

See the coverage in electionLine and on the US Election Assistance Commission blog.
