Polling place accessibility is the law --RSS Feed

By Tonya Villwock, Independent Living Services Coordinator—Branch Offices

When you vote in today’s Partisan Primary, remember that the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA) requires that every polling place in the U.S. must meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility requirements.

If you have concerns about the accessibility of your polling site, talk to the poll workers at your site, contact your municipality or contact the Wisconsin Disability Vote Coalition, 1-844-347-8683 V/Relay!

All voters have the right to cast a ballot privately and independently. Even though the Wisconsin Elections Commission conducts audits of polling sites around the state, they need YOUR voice when accessibility barriers are encountered. Please speak up and most importantly, your vote matters!

Today’s vote focuses on who can move ahead to the fall election on November 6, 2018, regarding seats for Wisconsin Governor, U.S. Senator, U.S. Representative, odd-numbered Wisconsin State Senate seats and all Wisconsin Assembly seats.
