The Vermont Secretary of State and Disability Rights Vermont


Under the Help America Vote Act, Disability Rights Vermont (DRVT) has a special role in ensuring the voting rights of people with disabilities. One of DRVT’s roles is to make sure there is full participation in the voting process including registering to vote, casting a vote and accessing polling places. The Secretary of State (SOS) chose a new accessible ballot marking system that was available for use statewide in the August primaries. The SOS has invited us to gather information from voters who used the system and to gather any additional information that may help improve voting accessibility for individuals with, cognitive, emotional, learning, physical, sensory and visual disabilities.

In Case you missed it – Please Fill out the Survey ASAP!!

Good afternoon,
Two weeks ago Disability Rights Vermont emailed a survey to you on behalf of the Elections Division of the Secretary of State’s office. This survey was to gather information about your use of the new accessible ballot marking system.
For those who have not had the opportunity to respond, please do so at your earliest convenience. We plan to tabulate the results next week and want to include your thoughts and experiences with the new system.
 The survey is a fillable PDF, you can return it:
1. By email to [email protected];
2. Fax 802-229-1359 attention Zachary; or
3. Snail mail DRVT, Attn: Zachary, 141 Main Street, Montpelier, VT 05602.
Please contact me by email or phone (802) 229-1355 ext. 109 with any questions or concerns.
Thank you!
