NEW Innovative Elections Accessibility Training Video Series

Accessible Elections: Information for Election Officials. EAC and GBH logos.

The EAC, in partnership with the Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family National Center for Accessible Media at GBH (NCAM), released an innovative video training series for election officials, poll workers, and other election stakeholders on making voting more accessible to the 15.8 million voters with disabilities.  

Titled “Accessible Elections - Information for Election Officials,” the series’ lessons incorporate not only physical accessibility, such as creating accessible polling places, but also promote ways election administrators can create accessible websites, social media, other electronic communications, and forums. The series’ broadly applicable guidance adheres to accessibility laws nationwide.   

The eight episodes are: 

  1. Understanding Disability 
  2. Interacting with People with Disabilities… and Everyone 
  3. Assistive Technology 
  4. Basic Considerations for Website Accessibility 
  5. Accessible Social Media 
  6. Digital Accessibility 
  7. Making Voter-Related Videos and Forums Accessible to All 
  8. Physical Considerations in the Polling Place 

Each video, now available on the EAC’s YouTube channel, is between five and seven minutes long.  


October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month!
