MODDC develops Accessible Voting Equipment Tutorials in preparation of Midterm Election

The Missouri Developmental Disabilities Council (MODDC) funded a project to connect voters and election workers in Missouri with quick, overview videos on how to use the accessible voting equipment in their county.

These videos are designed to:

  1. prepare voters on what to expect when they go vote,
  2. provide additional support to election judges on how to operate the machines, and
  3. serve as a way to troubleshoot any issues encountered by election judges or voters the day of voting.
