Language Access Webinar

WHEN
October 04, 2018 at 1pm - 3pm
WHERE
Virtual Webinar

The spread of restrictive voting laws has discouraged voters and made it more important than ever that community advocates find ways to make underrepresented voters feel welcome in the polling place. Ensuring that elections are linguistically accessible is one of the most effective methods of achieving this goal.


Join us on October 4, 2018 at 1 p.m. Eastern to talk with community-based organizations and election administrators who have worked together to expand and improve in-language access by:

  • Helping to translate materials and recruit bilingual poll workers;
  • Monitoring polling places; and
  • Advising on outreach to voters and training election employees.

Please RSVP to receive log-in credentials.
