Accessible Voting and Language Access

Digital Accessibility

The DC Board of Elections is committed to maintaining an accessible website that provides equal access to voting information and resources for all District of Columbia residents. We view our overall site and platform as compliant with Section 508 Standards, and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0), a globally recognized voluntary consensus standard for web content. However, we regularly measure our site’s accessibility by using a variety of methods, such as browser plug-ins and external vendor assessments. This continuous approach helps ensure that accessibility will be maintained as guidelines change and technology evolves.
If you use assistive technology, such as a screen reader, eye tracking device, voice recognition software, etc., and have difficulty accessing information on our website, we kindly your feedback. Please contact us via email at IThelpdesk@dcboe.org or call (202) 727-2525, and provide the link (web address of the material you tried to access), details about the problem you experienced, and your contact information.
