Help With Voting

Your vote matters! If you need voter education materials on audio tape, CD, in large print or plain language, or downloads to listen to or read with a screen reader…be sure to order these alternate formats today, so that they show up in plenty of time for Election Day. Contact your County Elections Office or CA Secretary of State’s website at http://www.sos.ca.gov/…/voting-resources/voters-disabilities.
