A Voting Accessibility Advisory Committee (VAAC) is a community members and elections officials committee that meets regularly to help the elections officials develop strategies to improve voting accessibility. A VAAC advises county elections officials about issues relating to voting accessibility. A VAAC provides a forum for the disability and senior communities to voice their concerns and opportunities for collaboration and outreach.
The VAAC is a partnership, which will create dialogue between the elections office and the disability and senior community. The VAAC plays an important role in assisting the county to comply with election laws and helps provide equal access to all voters. Issues such as accessible voting systems, accessibility of polling places and ways to improve the voting experience are examples of typical areas for discussion.
