While attending the 2011 convention of the National Federation of the 
Blind at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, don't forget to visit the 
free literature area, Sebastian K and L Ballrooms, Level 1, to pickup 
copies of The Blind Voter's Guide and The Blind Voter Registration 
Drive Guide.  Both guides were prepared by the NFB Jernigan Institute 
under a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The nonpartisan Blind Voter's Guide discusses the right of blind 
individuals to cast a private and independent vote, as guaranteed by 
the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), why it is important to vote, and 
how to register to vote.  It is available in Braille, large print, 
and audiocassette.

Hosting a voter registration drive is a great way for state 
affiliates and local chapters to attract new members and serve your 
community.  The Blind Voter Registration Drive Guide will provide you 
with the tools necessary to plan and hold a voter registration drive 
for the blind members of your community.  It is available in Braille 
and large print.

If you have any questions or will not be attending convention and 
would like to receive The Blind Voter's Guide and/or The Blind Voter 
Registration Drive Guide, please contact Lou Ann Blake in the 
National Federation of the Blind Jernigan Institute by e-mail at 
<mailto:lblake at nfb.org>lblake at nfb.org or by telephone at 
410-659-9314, ext. 2221.
