Individuals with disabilities in Erie County could have some issues casting their votes today according to Disability Rights New York, the state designated protection and advocacy system. DRNY said 84 percent of polling places in the county had barriers preventing voters with disabilities from access.

“It is inexcusable that Erie County is still using inaccessible polling locations and voting systems that don’t work for people with disabilities,” Executive Director Timothy A. Clune said, “If you can’t get in, you can’t vote.”

The study is based on a survey conducted during the state General Elections on November 8, 2016. It concluded Erie County is in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which guarantees physical access to polling places.

The most prevalent issue, according to the report, is parking access. Nearly two-thirds of sites had parking barriers including no van access, lack of signage, and parking spots that were too far from the entrance.

The report said there were common issues with accessibility for entrances, voting areas, and the voting devices as well. We’ve reached out to the Erie County Board of Elections for comment.
