Language Accessibility Advisory Committee (LAAC)

The Language Accessibility Advisory Committee (LAAC) was established to advise the Elections Department on issues related to language accessibility of elections and election materials. The mission of the LAAC is to advise and assist the Elections Department with implementation of federal and state laws relating to access of the electoral process by low English proficiency (LEP) voters, so that all voters can understand the voting process.

The LAAC also provides recommendations identifying and prioritizing activities, programs, and policies to ensure every voter has equal access to the ballot.

The responsibilities of the committee include:

  1. Providing expertise on language accessibility issues.
  2. Promoting language accessibility initiatives.
  3. Responding to the Departments questions regarding language
