The Help America Vote Act (HAVA) requires that every polling place have at least one accessible voting machine available for every federal election so voters with disabilities can cast a private and independent ballot. To help ensure that blind and low vision voters are not denied this right, the National Federation of the Blind will host an Election Day hotline that blind and low vision voters, poll workers, and voting rights advocates can call when problems with accessible voting technology or other barriers are preventing a blind voter from casting a private and independent ballot.
> The hotline will be available on November 8, 2016, by calling 1-877-632-1940 from 7 a.m. EST to 7 p.m. PST. Individuals who have experience in the operation of accessible voting technology will be staffing the hotline to provide assistance to blind voters, election officials, and voting rights advocates.
> Once you have exercised your fundamental right to vote, please complete our 2016 Blind and Low Vision Voter Experience Survey! If you cast your ballot at an early voting center, your local polling place on Election Day, or by absentee ballot that you received by regular mail, please complete the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JJ5N38X. If you used a personal computer or tablet to mark your ballot, please complete the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JM9CMY6.
