County elections office seeks Disability Advisory Committee members

Posted June 22, 2022 at 6:54 pm by

The coun­ty’s elec­tions office sends along a request for vol­un­teer com­mit­tee members.

If you are look­ing for a way to serve your com­mu­ni­ty, the San Juan Coun­ty Elec­tions Office could use your help. We are look­ing for per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties and providers of ser­vices to per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties to serve on the Dis­abil­i­ty Advi­so­ry Committee.

Wash­ing­ton State law requires every coun­ty to have a Dis­abil­i­ty Advi­so­ry Com­mit­tee. The com­mit­tee must include per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties and may include any inter­est­ed per­son. One pur­pose of the Dis­abil­i­ty Advi­so­ry Com­mit­tee is to pro­vide input to the coun­ty elec­tions depart­ment regard­ing accom­mo­da­tions to ensure equal access to vot­ers with dis­abil­i­ties. The objec­tive is to ensure that all vot­ers can vote inde­pen­dent­ly and privately.

San Juan County’s Dis­abil­i­ty Advi­so­ry Com­mit­tee meet­ing will be on June 29 at 9 a.m. via Microsoft Teams.

If you are inter­est­ed, please con­tact the San Juan Coun­ty Elec­tions office at (360) 378‑3357 or elections@sanjuanco.com.
