The US Election Assistance Commission (EAC) is hosting an all-day forum to address growing concerns regarding accessibility and security in election administration. This forum will bring together state and local election officials, people with disabilities, disability advocates, and election security experts to discuss issues and potential actionable items. Agenda discussion topics will include: (1) The 2020 elections and voters with disabilities, (2) ballot-marking devices, (3) proven best practices in voting accessibility, (4) vote-by-mail, (5) electronic ballot delivery, and (6) emerging voting technology for people with disabilities. The EAC is committed to upholding the voting rights of people with disabilities established under the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) amidst growing security needs. The full agenda will be posted in advance on the EAC website: https://www.eac.gov.
