Voting Accessibility Advisory Committee (VAAC)
On August 22, 2014, the California Secretary of State published providing guidance to counties on the formation of local VAAC committees. In cooperation with the San Mateo County Commission on Disabilities, the Registration & Elections Division founded the San Mateo County VAAC in 2015.
The San Mateo County VAAC members represent agencies and organizations within San Mateo County. The VAAC holds quarterly meetings.
The VAAC encourages citizen participation and provides valuable information to the Registration & Elections Division on county-wide voting accessibility matters affecting seniors and individuals with disabilities. VAAC members have provided key input into our elections process. The San Mateo County VAAC has participated in reviewing Vote by Mail envelopes, researching alternative voting options, advocating for increased public transportation options during Election Day, and contributed to several other Registration & Elections Division initiatives.
