State and Local Actions and Federal Resources to Address Accessibility of Early Voting

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) has recently published the report, Voters with Disabilities: State and Local Actions and Federal Resources to Address Accessibility of Early Voting.

The study found that selected states and localities have taken steps to make voting accessible for people with disabilities, but election officials and advocacy officials reported that challenges continue including physical obstacles, voting equipment not being set up properly, and difficulty marking paper mail ballots. In addition, selected states and localities have taken steps to make voting information available and accessible, but voters with disabilities may encounter challenges with both.

A summary of the report's findings and recommendations is also available.
