At the National Coalition for Accessible Voting, we intend to be a catalyst for positive change. The Coalition has two main goals:
First, to ensure that in-person accessible voting remains a viable option for all voters. We have already seen how the pandemic has resulted in the large-scale closing of polling locations and, with them, the loss of convenience and accessible options to vote.
Second, to advocate on behalf of citizens who choose to vote remotely to have an accessible voting option. We believe that it is time to make concerted progress toward eliminating the conflict between security and the statutory right to an accessible, private and independent option to vote — whether in-person or remotely.
