The U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division recently published "Ballot Drop Box Accessibility - the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)". This six-page technical assistance publication provides guidance on the physical access requirements of the 2010 ADA Standards for ballot drop boxes. These include accessible routes to boxes, clear floor and ground space, and accessible ballot drop openings. The publication also includes a survey that can be used to check the accessibility of boxes and locations being considered.
