MADISON, Wis. — In virtually all cases of a level playing field for all citizens equal opportunity means providing access and letting citizens know that access is available.

The city of Madison Clerks Office is doing a great job this week letting voters of all abilities know about accessible options to cast a ballot and have that ballot count.

Absentee ballots mailed to your home is one of the better known options, although folks might not know they don’t need to submit a copy of their ID to the clerk’s office if they’re on the permanent absentee list. But voters with disabilities can also vote from the curb of their polling place by having someone notify the poll workers there’s a curbside voter. And ExpressVote is available at every polling place and offers a Braille keypad or a large print touchscreen.

With too many politicians trying to suppress the vote we appreciate the Madison City Clerk’s commitment to equal opportunity for all.
