MAKE POLLS ACCESSIBLE TO SENIOR CITIZENS AND DISABLED

By Bob Katzen

This bill Creates a Polling Location Accessibility Fund, administered by the secretary of state, that will give grants to cities and towns to make improvements to ensure that polling places are easily accessible to senior citizens and disabled persons.

“I filed this bill because everyone deserves equal access to the right to vote,” said sponsor Rep. Bruce Ayers (D-Quincy). “We need to be diligent in ensuring that every citizen can vote easily and safely in person if they so choose, and we can’t let any physical barriers dissuade any resident from doing their civic duty in casting their vote.”
