Take the Voting Survey

Your leaders of FCB are working to enable all of us to vote privately, with independence and confidence. Regardless of how you cast your votes, we need to know what method you used and why you chose to vote that way, so we can share that important data with elections and legislative officials. Your help is needed to gather data as part of our advocacy for accessible voting equipment that are seamless with the standard voting machines (i.e.: votes on accessible machines are not differentiated from the rest).
