Practical Tips for Supporting Seniors and Persons with Intellectual Disabilities Making Decisions Regarding LTSS

Date: September 29, 2014

Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Everyone has a right to make decisions regarding their medical care and long term service and supports. Our society is starting to recognize that people with intellectual disabilities have just as much a right to make these decisions as those without disabilities; and that supports (whether by humans or technology) must be made available to ensure this right. Participants will learn: the basic principles of supported decision making; examples from other countries of how to implement LTSS supported decision making on a broad scale; and current possibilities for training on and funding the model.

Poll Worker Training: The New Frontier in Accessible Polling Places 

Date: Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Time: 2:00-3:30 p.m., EST

Despite efforts to update polling places and balloting equipment in the several years following passage of the Help America Vote Act – the P&A Network, Election Protection, and voting advocates nationwide have noted that even the best polling places are only as effective as the poll workers running them. Often, the experiences of voters with disabilities at the polling place rely entirely on the ability of poll workers to interact with them effectively and provide necessary accommodations in a respectful and timely manner. Toward this end, the Research Alliance on Accessible Voting, or RAAV (an Election Assistance Commission federal grant awardee), evaluated current poll worker training techniques across two states by contacting voters, poll workers, local election authorities, and Secretaries of State. Combined with a survey of effective adult learner models, RAAV partners developed a modular curriculum and resources for training poll workers that integrate accessibility, voter accommodations, and communicating with voters throughout the broader training, as well as easy-to-use Election Day job aides for poll workers to access while on duty in assisting voters. The team lead for this project will present relevant findings, the materials created, and recommendations for use. P&As will be given access to RAAV’s materials to implement with election authorities in their own states.
