Report finds accessibility lacking for Metro Detroit voters with disabilities

July 20 , 2023

ID: A line of voting booths with one person standing behind one as they cast their vote.

In other cases, the voting booths themselves didn't meet standards for accessibility, or the polling places had technology to assist voters with disabilities, but it didn't work.

Detroit Disability Power communications director Ramiro Alvarez said some solutions to these problems are simple.

“The audit found that with appropriate training of poll workers, some better signage, and just a couple of considerations around doorways, stairs, ramps and sidewalks a lot of these polling locations can remove their access barrier as early as the next election," Alvarez said.
