Voting Accessibility

CIDNY’s ongoing voting rights project surveys the accessibility of poll sites in New York City to assure that voters with disabilities can vote at their local poll sites, as part of their community, without facing any barriers. As our survey work has shown, just getting in the door at neighborhood poll sites remains a significant barrier to voting for people with disabilities.

If you would like to be a part of our poll site surveys, or have other questions, contact Tashia Lerebours at tlerebours@cidny.org.
