The District of Columbia Board of Elections (DCBOE) is committed to ensuring that every voter has equal access to disseminated information and the voting process. As a result, we are working to ensure that all our polling sites are one hundred percent accessible and that our website meets federal government standards for making web content and applications usable for persons with disabilities. These "Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Standards" were established by the Federal Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board to fulfill the mandate of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998. Section 508 requires that all federal government agencies provide access to electronic information and data for persons with disabilities that is comparable to the access provided to other persons, unless doing so would impose an undue burden on the agency. The specific standards can be found at Volume 65, Number 246 Fed. Reg. Page 80499-80528 (December 21, 2000), or on the Section 508 website.
DCBOE has an ongoing goal to upgrade the agency's website to be more citizen-centric, but the improvements are still in the initial stages. Please be patient with us as we make our website accessible and as user-friendly as possible.
