Merced County’s Registrar of Voters announced that the Merced County Registrar of Voters Language Accessibility Advisory Committee (LAAC) is accepting new membership applications. The LAAC is an all-volunteer committee established to advise on issues related to language accessibility for elections and elections materials. The mission of the LAAC is to advise and assist with implementation of federal and state laws relating to access to the electoral process by voters with limited-English proficiency so that all persons eligible to vote can understand the voting process. The LAAC also provides recommendations identifying and prioritizing activities, programs, and policies to ensure every voter has equal access to the ballot.
If you are interested in participating in the Language Accessibility Advisory Committee, download and fill out the LAAC application below and submit it to the Merced County Registrar of Voters in person or via email. If you have any questions please call the office at (209) 385-7541.
