The Riverside County Registrar of Voters is seeking people interested in becoming members of the local Voting Accessibility Advisory Committee.

On Jan. 28, the Riverside County Registrar of Voters will hold a VAAC meeting for the senior community and those with disabilities in the county. The committee provides a forum for the community to advise, assist, voice concerns and provide recommendations to the registrar.

These thoughts and statements will lead to improved access to the electoral process for voters with disabilities. The registrar encourages members of the public to join the local committee.

Requirements for prospective committee members include: fully completing a membership application; attending local VAAC meetings at the Registrar of Voters office on a quarterly basis or appointing a representative to attend; and committing up to 20 hours annually to attend the local VAAC meetings and other related meetings. No experience is necessary to become a member.

Applications are available at the Registrar of Voters Office, 2724 Gateway Drive in Riverside, which is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Membership applications also are available by contacting the VAAC Chair Julie Caban at 951-486-7353 or Co-chair Larry Smith at 951-486-7202. The membership application must be submitted to the registrar’s office no later than 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 22.

Appointments to the local VAAC will be made by the Riverside County Registrar of Voters after reviewing all of the applications received.
