In 2013, Elections Saskatchewan (an election management body) partnered with disability rights organizations, organizations of older people, the International Foundation for Electoral Systems, and the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy to create the Electoral Accessibility Initiative. The Initiative is focused on identifying a range of accessibility issues that are important to voters with disabilities, and has generated a number of findings that will influence Elections Saskatchewan's Accessibility Implementation Plan for future elections.

This report, entitled Toward Improved Accessibility for Saskatchewan Voters, includes findings from a recent accessibility assessment, and outlines the steps that Elections Saskatchewan will take in its Accessibility Implementation Plan to improve access to different voting options, polling places, electoral products and services, and supporting greater voter information and public education on this topic.
