The Research Alliance for Accessible Voting (RAAV) includes teams looking at all aspects of accessible voting. We will continue to work on technologies and approaches that address a variety of barriers to voting:
- Disabilities as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Lack of educational opportunity
- Difficulties due to aging or other life circumstances
- Limited English proficiency
In addition, the project website (under construction) will be a national resource on the project and accessible voting in general. It is designed to be a model of accessible web design and web content.
The RAAV consists of 10 organizational partners. One of the partners, Clemson University, serves as the manager of the project and liaison with the funder and two designated collaborators: NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), and ITIF (Information Technology and Innovation Foundation). Together we will engage the disability community, people with limited literacy and/or limited English, legislators, election administrators, and vendors to advance the project mission.
