I got a little email this morning that I figured I’d pass on. I bet I got it because of commenting on their accessible voting plan. There’s a small part of me, a small crazy part, that’s thinking about going for this. But I don’t know where the meetings are, how long they are, and how easy it would be to get to them. But at the very least, I can pass the info along.
The Chief Electoral Officer of Ontario is seeking volunteers from across the province to serve on the inaugural Elections Ontario Accessibility Advisory Committee (EOAAC).
