Help America Vote Act Fact Sheet
The Help America Vote Act (HAVA) is a law designed to improve the voting system in the United States. HAVA’s main goal is to make the voting process more inclusive and accessible so that more Americans will register to vote and participate in elections. Polling places should be accessible to individuals with disabilities to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). However, if the polling place is inaccessible and in violation of the ADA, the polling location must provide people with disabilities an alternate way to vote. This includes curbside voting where voters use a portable machine to cast their ballots. See the Resources section to find the ADA checklist for polling place accessibility.
The League of Women Voters is committed to ensuring voters have the information they need to successfully participate in elections. We created VOTE411.org in 2006 and have provided tens of millions of voters with information about the election process and information directly from candidates regarding their vision for their community's and America’s future. Every election, whether local, state or federal, is important to ensuring our laws and policies reflect the values and beliefs of our communities.
