Every election is a challenge for blind, vision-impaired, and disabled voters to keep their voting preferences confidential. The Tactile Traveler’s Nick Isenberg spoke with Curtis Chong, voting rights spokesperson for the National Federation of the Blind of Colorado, to find out how this is changing in 2020.

This second installment of The Tactile Traveler features reporter Nick Isenberg visiting the Braille Trail on Independence Pass, plus we learn about the National Federation of the Blind Convention and a reporter from the Philippines tells us how blind people survive typhoons.

Applying journalistic skills acquired while Nick could still see, "The Tactile Traveler" seeks to empower blind and low vision people to explore the world and help the sighted to see the world in a new way. Topics include the Second Annual Six Dot Dash, assessing avalanche damage in the White River National Park, self-driving cars for the blind, and riding the trolley through Denver.
