Voting Info for People with Disabilities
What if you wanted to vote but the polling place was locked? For many of the 33.7 million Americans with disabilities of voting age, this situation is all too real. Not because polling officials are deliberately blocking people with disabilities from entering, but because so many polling places are inaccessible. Whether it's due to a physical inaccessibility, or it's voting locations being ill prepaired to accomodate individuals with disabilties.
With the upcoming 2012 election having potential of being swayed by disability concerns (link), it's even more important for those individuals with disabilities to have an understanding and knowledge about their voting rights as citizens with disabilities.
Maine's Disability Rights Center (DRC) has put together a comprehensive guide for voters with disabilities (link), in order to make sure that people with disabilities know how to vote and their rights in the voting process.
If you have any specific questions concerning your needs or any other unanswered questions you can call the Division of Elections of the Secretary of State's office at (207)624-7650 or view the State of Maine's voter guide (link)
