About

The Accessible Voting Technology Initiative is working to:

  • Understand the barriers and facilitators to voting for people with disabilities
  • Identify gaps where current technology fails to fill user needs and where new solutions can have the most impact
  • Work to integrate these changes into the current election environment.

This project will address the needs of voters with different types of disabilities, including individuals with:

  • Sensory disability (blindness, low vision, hearing loss, and deafness)
  • Cognitive and intellectual disability
  • Motor mobility and dexterity disability
  • Communication and language-related disability
  • Disabilities common among older adults.

The Information Technology & Innovation Foundation is leading this project. Its partners in this initiative include:

This project is funded with a 3-year grant from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.
