This is a fantastic event! For those people who are a bit concerned about their own ability to vote, this is a great opportunity. Not only can you go to a great chapter meeting, and learn about the NFB, but you can stay around and vote for your favorite candidates or at least for those candidates you want to win! And by the way, you can vote in secret! God bless America! And kudos for a nice job to Marci in the Seattle chapter.

The polling place will be located in the Vancouver room on the first floor at CityU. While this Accessible Voting Center is available to any registered King County voter, it is open so that voters who are blind or have other disabilities and who need an Accessible Voting Unit in order to vote secretly and independently have a place to vote.
> King County Elections will be staffing this location and can show voters who might not be familiar with the units how to use them. Each unit has screen reading (with headphones), print enlarging, contact altering and font changing capabilities. There is also a sip-and-puff attachment for those who need it.
