Elections & Politics

Democracy in Any Language

To remove language barriers to political participation, and to prevent discrimination against people who speak languages other than English, the Voting Rights Act requires election materials to be provided in certain languages. With more than 25 years of experience, LanguageUSA helps entities, parties, and candidates communicate with our diverse public by using proven election terminology. We help you  consistently capture the proper intent and meaning in any election material, including:

  • Orders and Notices of election
  • Legal advertisements
  • Forms and voter signs
  • Bond materials
  • Official and sample ballots
  • Charter amendments, proclamations, and ordinances
  • Websites
  • Voter guides and registrations forms
  • Brochures and flyers

LanguageUSA provides translation for paper ballots as well as electronic voting systems. We incorporate desktop publishing services to ensure translated materials are ‘camera ready’ for newspaper publication. We provide additional customized services to enhance democracy in any language:

  • Audio recordings for use in electronic voting systems for the visually impaired
  • Telephonic Interpreters for polling locations on Election Day
  • Multilingual signage for polling locations
