VOTING ACCESSIBILITY ADVISORY COMMITTEE (VAAC)
As a committee under the Registrar of Voters, the Voting Accessibility Advisory Committee (VAAC) is responsible for making recommendations for improving access to voting and election materials and is designed to advise, assist, and provide recommendations to the Registrar of Voter’s office as to how voters with disabilities can vote independently and privately.
Staff from the Registrar of Voters office at the Business Extravaganza held June 13, 2019 performing Outreach and Education for Madera’s new Voting Model and new Voting System coupled with recruiting new members to the VAAC!
To be announced.
Meetings are held at least twice a year and more often as necessary prior to an election. Meetings are structured to provide a forum where community members can provide advice that contributes to the Registrar of Voter’s decision making process.
