Statement of Barbara Bovbjerg, Mng. Dir., Education, Workforce, and Income Security, GAO, before the National Council on Disability. Federal law generally requires polling places to be accessible to all eligible voters, including those with disabilities and the elderly.However, during the 2000 federal election, GAO found that only 16% of polling places had no potential impediments to voting access for people with disabilities. To address these and other issues, Congress enacted the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA), which required each polling place to have an accessible voting system by 2006. Congress asked GAO to reassess voting access on Election Day 2008, and also to study voter accessibility at long-term care facilities. This statement focuses on (1) progress made from 2000 to 2008 to improve voter accessibility in polling places, including relevancy to long-term care facilities and (2) steps the Dept. of Justice (DOJ) has taken to enforce HAVA voting access provisions. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
