Language Accessibility Advisory Committee (LAAC)
The Language Accessibility Advisory Committee (LAAC) is an advisory committee to the county elections office. The mission of the LAAC is to advise and assist the County Registrar with implementation of federal and state laws relating to access to the electoral process by voters with limited-English proficiency, so that all persons who vote can understand the voting process.
Sonoma County is required to provide language assistance in accordance with state and federal law for the following covered language: Spanish, Vietnamese, Khmer, and Tagalog. The LAAC also provides recommendations identifying and prioritizing activities, programs, and policies to ensure every voter has equal access to the ballot.
