Elections Ontario surveys consumers on accessibility of elections
Elections Ontario asks Ontarians to complete a survey and provide feedback on the voting experience, particularly on features such as accessibility tools at voting locations, customer service, easy-to-read signage, and voting by Special ballot. Survey deadline is July 14, 2014. CHS encourages consumers who are Deaf, deafened or hard of hearing to give their feedback to Elections Ontario regarding the accessibility of the election. See below for a letter from Elections Ontario and a survey.
A letter from Elections Ontario to Ontarians with disabilities.
In the 2011 general election, we at Elections Ontario made it our mission to make voting easy and put voters first. We introduced new methods and features to help remove barriers for all eligible Ontario voters. The recent 2014 general election was the next opportunity we had to showcase these methods and features created to improve voter experience at the polls.
In our efforts to continue improving our services, we are asking for feedback on the voting experience, particularly on features such as accessibility tools at voting locations, customer service, easy-to-read signage, and voting by Special ballot.
We are partnering with Ipsos Reid, a leading global market research firm, to collect data that we will use to make future decisions about accessibility at the polls.
Please provide us with insights on your voting experience in the 2014 provincial general election.
