Dear Fellow Federationists,

The US Election Assistance Commission (EAC) wants to hear from blind, 
low vision, and other voters with disabilities about their voting 
experience as part of their work to update voting system guidelines. 
As part of its effort to learn about the experience of voters with 
disabilities, the EAC held a public hearing on accessible voting on 
April 27, 2016, to hear from voters with disabilities. You can make 
your voting experience part of the official hearing transcript by 
emailing your voting story to <mailto:listen at eac.gov>listen at eac.gov 
by Wednesday, May 11, 2016. Help improve voting accessibility by 
telling your personal voting story to the EAC! Thank you!


Lou Ann

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the 
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise 
the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create 
obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can have the life 
you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

the Blind and help ensure all blind Americans live the lives they want.
