A series of recent audits and investigations across three states have revealed close to a thousand polling places that are non-compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or are otherwise inaccessible to voters with disabilities.

An analysis of the 2022 midterm elections by the organizations Detroit Disability Power (DDP) and the Carter Center revealed an overwhelming number of inaccessible polling locations in Detroit, Michigan and 14 surrounding suburbs. Of the audited cities, a whopping 84% of voting locations were plagued with barriers or impediments to voting for those with disabilities.
