Call for Voting Access Volunteers: Mayoral Primary

Tuesday, June 19, 2018 from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM

Contact: Kristina Majewski   kmajewki@uls-dc.org   202-527-7028  

Sponsored by: Disability Rights DC at University Legal Services (DRDC)

Disability Rights DC at University Legal Services (DRDC) advocates for access by DC residents with disabilities to government services and programs, including polling places on Election Day. As such, we are recruiting volunteers to survey DC’s polling places during the Election on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 to ensure that they are accessible to people with disabilities. DRDC will use the survey information to report on the level of accessibility and recommend changes to ensure full accessibility in future elections. Our latest report from the June 2016 Presidential Primary Election can be accessed HERE.

We are asking volunteers to go to DC polling places on June 19th anytime between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. and fill out a short CHECKLIST reporting whether there is a pathway and entrance that is accessible to people with mobility disabilities and whether audio and visual aids, along with other accessibility features, are available. If you are interested in surveying one or more polling places, please:

  • review the Excel spreadsheet listing the polling places HERE (If the “Reserved” column is blank, the polling site is available to survey.).
  • choose the polling place(s) you will survey; and
  • contact Kristina Majewski at kmajewki@uls-dc.org or 202-527-7028 to sign up.
