Good Morning Federation Family:

It's election day! If you haven't voted yet, here are a few things to keep
in mind. 

If you need a ride to the polls, Lyft is offering a $20 ride voucher. Do to
low usage of this voucher so far, Lyft has opened it up for wide
distribution. If you need a ride with Lyft to the polls, be sure to use
promo code NFBVote2020 and get there!

Now for some information about the NFB hotline and voter experience surveys.




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 3, 2020, by calling 1-877-NFB-1940
( 1-877-632-1940( from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific standard time.
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
2020 Blind and Low-Vision Voter Experience Survey! The 2020 blind and
low-vision voter experience survey consists of two separate surveys. If you
voted absentee or by mail using an accessible electronic ballot delivery
system or a traditional paper ballot, please complete the survey for blind
and low-vision voters who voted absentee or by mail at


If you are a blind or low-vision voter who voted at an early voting center
or at a polling place on Election Day, please complete the survey at
