Help improve voting access


The Wahkiakum County Auditor’s Office is creating a committee to recommend ways to make voting more accessible to voters in Wahkiakum County and invites community participation.

A Washington law requires that each county in Washington have an advisory committee. The committee will provide input to elections officials to make certain that voting is accessible to all voters, including those with disabilities.

The Auditor is seeking people in Wahkiakum County who may be interested in serving on this Committee. In addition to voters with disabilities, committee members may include representatives from organizations who work with seniors and people with disabilities, business leaders, senior citizens, special education teachers, service club members, veterans, church members, community members and others. Diane Tischer, Wahkiakum County Auditor, encourages anyone in the community who is interested or with ideas on how to improve voting accessibility to participate on the committee.

The committee will meet for the first time on Tuesday, August 13, 2 p.m., at the 3rd floor meeting room in the Wahkiakum County Courthouse. At this meeting, committee members will discuss what is available and what more can be done to make voting more accessible.

Tischer said it is vital that all voters have the opportunity to vote on local, state, and federal races and issues. “We want to reach out to the community to ensure the needs of all voters are being met,” she said.

Interested individuals should contact the Wahkiakum County Auditor at (360) 795-3219 or email Diane Tischer at
