County of San Benito, County Clerk & Recorder

Voting Accessibility Advisory Committee (VAAC)

As a committee under the Elections Department, the Voting Accessibility Advisory Committee (VAAC) is responsible for making recommendations for improving access to voting and election materials.

The VAAC is designed to advise, assist, and provide recommendations to the Elections Department as to how voters with disabilities can vote independently and privately. The County’s VAAC members have been influential in assisting with numerous projects, including the production of Election Administration Plan (EAP) for the Voter’s Choice Act (VCA) Guidelines. They have helped raise awareness of disability issues through their community involvement and production of the Poll Worker Accessibility Training.
