To ensure all individuals who are eligible to vote but need access to information about voting, elections, and civics in languages other than English get access to that information, including Limited English Proficiency (LEP) residents, AdamsVotes created a Language Access Plan (LAP).
Some sections of the LAP will be on this page, where they will be regularly updated.
For General Language Access Inquiries:
Community Outreach Coordinator
“I Speak” Language Cards are available to download for help accessing translation or interpretation services through Adams County.
Established partnerships with other organizations and community members are integral and are the LAP’s priority. These relationships are instrumental in helping Adams County provide meaningful access. The following is a list of currently identified resources that have volunteered and are available to assist with language assistance services.
