“One way to see the ASL interpretation is to find the ASL interpreter(s) in the participant list, and then right click and select the “pin video” option for that person. This will allow you to keep the interpretation video front and center during the meeting. The hosts will also “spotlight for everyone” the active ASL interpreter, so it should automatically come to the front, as well. The ASL interpreters will be switching off during the session.”“In this meeting, there are two ASL interpreters named “ASL - Krystal” and “ASL – Audrey.” Both interpreters are co-hosts, so their names should be near the top of the participant list. To access the participants list, click the “participants” button at the bottom of the meeting screen.”

“If a speaker begins or ends to share their screen, you may have to re-pin the ASL video each time. During a screen share, make sure that “side-by-side” mode is selected under “view options” prior to pinning the interpreter. To adjust the size of the interpreter’s video compared to the shared screen, mouse over to reveal the line dividing the two screens, and then click and drag that line to the left or right depending on your needs.”“During the screen share, all presenter cameras will be off, so that the ASL interpreters are visible on the Facebook live stream. Prior and post the screen share, we invite all presenters to activate cameras, as the multiple spotlight functionality will carry over to Facebook in this circumstance.”

Our elections were held at the Election Commission Headquarters, Hot Springs Convention Center and a few other places. Voting machines were at least six feet away from each other. I did early voting at the Hot Springs Convention Center.
Lindsay Dunn
01:08:31
Thanks so much for making this session accessible to me and providing ASL interpreters. I am especially grateful that you selected Black ASL interpreters since it is very rare that Black ASL interpreters are seen in these kinds of discourses. Black Deaf academics like me value this thoughtfullness and hope it is something all black professional organizations/institutions will recognize as essential considerations in our common quest to uplift humanity.
Patricia Carney
01:10:46
We will have to be vigilant that the efforts to restrict voting access don't succeed.

In Florida, only a few counties had online voting but only if you knew how to specifically ask for it and declare you have a disability. In-person voting were not distanced and the accessible voting machine is facing the room so that everyone in the room can see your choices.
Patricia Carney
01:12:27
What do you see your role in the next few years as efforts ramp up to restrict voting access?

Yes, everyone get vaccinated. 50 million people have already had their first shot. The vaccine is safe.

Brande Kitzberger

What are the best ways to get involved with voter education and turnout at the government and non profit level?
James Garcia

Yes, everyone get vaccinated. 50 million people in the U.S. have already had their first shot. The vaccine is safe.
Lindsay Dunn

click on “more” then see ‘full transcript” then save it and you can read all that is being said
Steve Repanich
01:14:43
What about national mail in voting?
Robin Troutman
01:14:56
How do we ensure election security but not prohibiting accessibility? Many election security professionals state that only paper ballots are secure, but as we know they are not fully accessible
Beca Bailey
01:15:20
im thrilled that CCEC Citizens Clean Election Commission partnered with us, ACDHH on creating ASL version of AZ's Voter Education guide and strongly encourage other states to follow suit....so important that our Deaf/Deafblind/Hard of Hearing community has access to general voting information and the candidate statements in order to make informed voting decisions on the ballot
Monica Bartley
01:16:11
Is there any work being done to develop a fully online voting option that is secure for people who are blind or visually impaired?
Shannon Rivas
01:16:14
In order to be a poll worker or election worker, does he or she need to receive any training before getting started?
Beca Bailey
01:16:14
the video is fully accessible in ASL, captions and voiceover as ACDHH/CCEC used deaf talent to do the videos!
Nicki Ott
01:16:16
I live in Iowa where a bill restricting voter access is awaiting the governor's signature. Many people voiced their opposition to this bill but it is likely to be signed into law. What steps would you recommend to help continue advocating for voter access for all?
Robin Troutman
01:16:42
check out Power The Polls for information on being a poll worker.

in the Deaf community we have an organization called Sign Vote which campaigns to get more Deaf people registered to vote. Also organizations such as the National Black Deaf Advocates, Inc. the National Association of the Deaf, are engaged in educating us although more could be done such as collaborating more with other disability organizations.
S AAConfonDisabilities
01:17:36
Is there a push for every state to offer online voting? If not, can there be?
Laura Demeuse
01:18:45
as a former poll worker, I believe it would be INCREDIBLY difficult to change electronic means of voting. nothing electronic is connected to the internet or available to anyone but the clerks office.
Laura Demeuse
01:19:25
*to change a vote entered through electronic means
Amelia Dickerson
01:19:58
In Colorado, you can fill it out completely online. In the end, you do need to print it off and either mail it in or drop it off at a ballot box.
Beca Bailey
01:21:06

Pamela Mollenhauer
01:22:02
With regards to the question from Iowa, it has to do with shortening the absentee voting time frame.
Stephanie Swanberg
01:22:14
How concerned are you with all these states trying to find ways of voter suppression?
Robin Troutman
01:22:26
Iowa is also shortening the time of how long the polling places will remain open
Nicki Ott
01:22:47
also in Iowa if you miss ONE election, you will be purged from the voter rolls
Laura Demeuse
01:23:57
Nicki it- ANY election? of just presidential?
Laura Demeuse
01:24:06
*Ott
Shannon Rivas
01:24:48
I think Presidential election is held every four years.
Nicki Ott
01:25:17
it says voters who skip a general election will be required to re-register
Shannon Rivas
01:25:58
I've never missed a single voting election....
Laura Demeuse
01:26:17
wow! there would be SO many people, no matter who they are who will be kicked off! certainly this needs to be addressed
Robin Troutman
01:26:26
you are correct @Shannon. the Presidential election is every 4 years
Juliana Huerena
01:26:39
Arizona has a vote coalition, Arizona Disability Vote Coalition. Our first meeting this year will be in March to discuss our goals and strategies for the next 2 years for voters with disabilities in Arizona. If anyone attending this session is interested in joining us, stay toon for an announcement or let us know.
S AAConfonDisabilities
01:26:57
What mechanisms are in place to ensure states actually implement the accessible voting they claim to offer? And what can we do to hold them accountable?
Steve Repanich
01:27:14
did he comment on national mail in voting?
Juliana Huerena
01:27:21
Helo
Nicki Ott
01:27:45
Exactly, Laura. I have called and emailed all of my reps and the governor. 964 people signed up to speak against the bill and 22 in support at a recent public hearing, but it seems to be fast-tracked to go through regardless. We'll keep working!
Laura Demeuse
01:30:15
one thing most people don’t know is that any state who takes money from the federal government to fund election activities must have ALL of their voting equipment accessible, but of course, this is not well enforced
S AAConfonDisabilities
01:31:56
Any chance that the federal government will step in and create some universal accessible voting standards?
Donna DeStefano
01:33:10
Excellent session - many htnkas
