We hope you will join us for our second annual convening on language access. Throughout the United States, citizens for whom English is a second language may want or need language assistance when voting, such as having their ballot or other election materials in their native language. Furthermore, federal law requires over 260 jurisdictions to provide some type of language assistance.

It is against this backdrop that the U.S. Election Assistance Commission and Democracy Fund Voice are assembling election officials, voting rights groups, and other experts to meet and share information. Panels will feature discussions on:

  • Changes in national demographics
  • Updates for jurisdictions complying with federal law
  • Cultivating long-term relationships with diverse communities
  • Assessing and planning for resources for language assistance

Experts from the field will share best practices and tools for effective language assistance in short, interactive, and lively forums throughout the day.
