  • Polling Place Accessibility Checklist

ADAP and the League of Women Voters of Alabama have partnered to create a one-page survey that can be used to access polling locations for common barriers to accessibility. The  survey is based upon federal accessibility standards under the Americans with Disabilities Act and voting system standards under the Help America Vote Act. The survey may be printed and mailed directly to ADAP. Click here, for a copy of the Checklist..
