We are calling on everyone, including voters, non-voters, election officials, people with disabilities, designers, engineers, and students, to help us make elections more accessible for everyone. *We invite you to join this challenge.* Read more below or at: *http://www.openideo.com/open/voting/brief.html* *What is the challenge?* We are searching for creative answers to the question: How might we design an accessible election experience for everyone? Here’s how the process works. We start by trying to better understand the problem. Over the next few weeks, everyone will be invited to help us research the issues and share their experiences. We are sharing stories, insights and examples of voting systems or experiences that might relate to elections and accessibility. Then, we’ll start focusing on brainstorming solutions. Along the way, there will be opportunities for feedback and to refine concepts and solutions. You can join the challenge at any time. The discussion is always open. *Who should participate?* Everyone is encouraged to participate. Everyone. That includes you!
