October 10, 2018 | 10am-12pm | Washington, DC

The D.C. Board of Elections (BOE) remains committed to ensuring that all District residents have equal access to the voting process. Therefore, we will be hosting our bi-annual Voter Access Forum to discuss voting accessibility and language access, during the upcoming 2018 General Election. We are excited about this important event, because at the heart of any inclusive community is the active engagement of its citizens. The forum will be held on Wednesday, October 10th, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at 1015 Half Street S.E., Suite 750. If you are able to attend this important event, please RSVP using the Eventbrite link.
