NFBN 2008 Convention: Making a Difference for Blind Voters


Making a Difference for Blind Voters

Enforcing the Help America Vote Act

The National Federation of the Blind is pleased to announce that Dale Baker, Election Commissioner for Hall County will be joining us Friday afternoon, October 10th at our annual state convention, taking place at the Howard Johnson Riverside Inn in Grand Island.

A champion of voters rights and equal accessibility for all Nebraskans to cast a private and independent vote, Dale will be on hand to demonstrate the Automark accessible voting machine. She will be in the hotel atrium beginning at 1:00 and remain throughout the afternoon.

Dale, along with the National Federation of the Blind of Nebraska, the Secretary of State’s Office and others worked to enforce the Help America Vote Act, which insures accessible voting for every Nebraskan who needs it in every county!

Casting an independent, private ballot has not always been a guaranteed right for the blind of Nebraska and this nation. Now, especially during this important election season, I urge you to come and take a look at this awesome, innovative and easy-to-use machine.

I look forward to seeing you in Grand Island.


Amy Buresh, NFBN President
