Hi Listers,

The January 2022 Braille Monitor is out. There is a very timely and well written article by Lou Ann Blake of our national staff. It is the third article in the magazine, and is called, “Voting is A Blindness Issue.” No matter your political beliefs, I urge you to read it, and see if you don’t agree we should work on the issue of much more accessible voting   issue for all disabled persons, and for blind people is particular this year. There is a chance that the voting rights Act may be voted on at least once this month, and other legislation about voting may follow. I know this issue is not one of the 4 on the agenda for the Washington seminar at the moment. But we could, if we want to do so, mention this very timely issue in meetings with staff and personally with our congressional delegations. All I know is that we may be able to influence our legislators by forcefully telling our congressional delegation our strong opinion about making voting more accessible. Also, we can make a different in our state and others in the country by contacting those state legislators where new laws that are being considered are most prevalent as well.

But, for now, I urge you to read Lou Ann’s article. It is very well thought out. Thanks to the Monitor Editor, (Gary Wunder) FOR PUTTING IT IN.
