In an effort to ensure that all voters in Amador County have the ability to cast a ballot that is independent, private and secure, the County Elections office has established a Voting and Language Accessibility Advisory Committee (VLAAC).
We are seeking individuals who can meet regularly (every 2 months) to examine the voting needs of, and give a voice to, the disability and independent living communities, as well voters with English as a second language. We are ideally looking to bring together 5 to 8 community representatives to collaborate with members of the Elections staff to improve voting accessibility.
Examples of voting accessibility topics are:
Voter education and outreach
If you feel you or someone you know would be suited for this committee, that is great!
The ideal candidate would be willing to make a year long commitment (6 meetings), be versed in the accessibility needs of the disability and independent living communities, or minority languages, and be willing to share their knowledge and experience in a positive, collaborative environment.
Feel free to reach out to us with any questions or suggestions. Also, feel free to share this with anyone you feel may bring value to these discussions.
Below you will find the Proposed Meeting Schedule for the next 12 months and a simple informational sheet. Please complete and return it if you are interested in joining our VLAAC. We are excited to get started and see what we can do as a community to improve our voting experiences for all voters!
