Make Your Sample Ballot Accessible

These companies have a track record with making sample ballots accessible:

Make Your State’s Online Voting Registration Process Accessible

  • New York Online Voting Stipulation (PDF): A binding court document in which the New York Board of Elections agrees in detail to make their Online Voter Registration accessible. The details specifically mention making PDFs accessible. They must do this now so it will be accessible this year (2016) for the Presidential election. The case is continuing – this is just the beginning! The same laws that got the state to agree apply to sample ballots, as well as the rest of the website. Now that this is public, suits to make sample ballots will be coming quickly because most of the legal heavy lifting is done.
