Help America Vote Act
Arizona Center for Disability Law (ACDL) is the Protection and Advocacy for Voting Access (PAVA) program for Arizona and was created by the Help America Vote Act (HAVA).
HAVA is a federal law passed by Congress in 2002 to improve our country’s election system. HAVA’s main goal is to make the voting process more inclusive and accessible so that more Americans will become registered voters and participate in elections.
The PAVA program seeks to ensure that individuals with disabilities have full participation in the electoral process through voter education regarding registering to vote, casting a vote and accessing the polling sites.
On Election Day, ACDL staffs a hotline to address election concerns for individuals with disabilities related to the right to vote independently, accessibility, and voting machines.
