Federal officials safeguard rights of disabled voters
The United States Attorney’s Office will deploy personnel to monitor Los Angeles County vote centers for their compliance with federal accessibility law for people with physical disabilities through Nov. 3.
Specifically, the U.S. Attorney’s Office will monitor Los Angeles County vote centers for their compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act for people with mobility and vision disabilities. The monitoring is part of the Justice Department’s ADA Voting Initiative.
Individuals who believe they might have been victims of discrimination in voting, including because of disability, may call the U.S. Attorney’s Office at (213)894-2879, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year marks the ADA’s 30th anniversary. For information, call the ADA Information Line at (800)514-0301, or visit ada.gov.
