The Role of a Unit Voting Assistance Officer (VAO)

The Unit VAO is critical to the success of voting assistance programs. In fact, the knowledge and effectiveness of a VAO, combined with a comprehensive voting assistance plan, may very well determine whether a citizen understands how and when to participate in the election process. The Unit VAO is responsible for providing accurate, nonpartisan voting information and assistance to citizens of all 50 states and 5 territories who want to exercise their right to vote.

Service Members should utilize their Unit VAO for faster service. If you do not know your Unit VAO, please call (913) 684-1717.
