The Commission on Quality of Care and Advocacy for Persons with Disabilities is conducting a vote survey that seeks to obtain statewide feedback from voters with disabilities in regard to their voting experience in the November 2010 general elections.

The information from the survey will be reported in a "Voter Experience Rating Guide" to be used as an education and outreach tool to raise awareness of the voting process for persons with disabilities.

The eight-question survey is available online and links directly to the Commission's website at http://www.cqcapd.state.ny.us/secure/voting.htm. The survey covers four main topics: accessibility of poll sites; accessibility and usability of the voting machines and ballot marking devices; voting privacy; and helpfulness of the poll workers.
