Rights: Senators Introduce Accessible Voting Act

On January 16, Senators Bob Casey (D-PA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) introduced the Accessible Voting Act (S.3206). This bill establishes an Office of Accessibility within the Election Assistance Commission to oversee efforts to expand voter accessibility, establishes a new voter accessibility website, and provides additional assistance to states to increase accessibility in the voting process. Additionally, the bill ensures individuals will not lose their right to vote solely because they are placed under guardianship. Learn more. The Arc supports this legislation.
