Detroit Polling Location Survey 2019
We are collecting information about as many polling locations as possible before 2020 to ensure that voters, particularly those of us with disabilities, are able to caste our ballot in this critical election. Across the US, disabled citizens vote 6% less than our non-disabled peers- that's enough to swing any recent presidential election! Part of that lower voter turnout is because of inadequate accommodations, inaccessible polling locations, and insufficient poll worker training.

We want to identify any potential problems at the polls, so we can work with the Detroit City Clerk to fix them before 2020. Please share with us your voting experience and we will investigate problem spots. While we are primarily focused on Detroit, if you live in other parts of the Metro area, we'd like your input as well.

Thank you for your help. Together we can ensure voting accessibility and build disability power!
