Wisconsin election officials are given immense responsibility to ensure that elections are conducted in a fair and impartial manner while maintaining the integrity of the election process.
A key to developing and maintaining public trust is to make the election process accessible and transparent for all participants. This involves working with representative organizations and groups, providing assistance to eliminate physical barriers to the polling place, acquiring voting equipment that enables all citizens to cast an independent and private ballot in a dignified manner and providing information that enables all citizens to fully participate in the election process.
The Government Accountability Board and its staff seeks input from representative groups and organizations regarding how best to assist individuals with disabilities, and to collaborate on voter education projects and receive community feedback.
The Government Accountability Board welcomes comments and suggestions for helping to eliminate the barriers faced by Wisconsin’s citizens with disabilities. Citizens can reach the Board toll free by calling 866-VOTEWIS (866-868-3947). Persons who are deaf or hard of hearing or have difficulty in speaking may contact the Board by using the Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay System.
