Laura Waterland, Project Director of CLASI’s Disabilities Law Program, has authored a guest blog post for the ACLU of Delaware titled “Delaware Needs Increased Access to the Ballot for Voters with Disabilities.”

She observes that last month’s decision by the Delaware Supreme Court striking down vote by mail and same-day registration means that “accessible voting will remain elusive for many” in Delaware—particularly for voters with disabilities, elderly voters, voters who live in facilities, and voters who live in rural areas.

“Nevertheless, there are significant ways that the Department of Elections and the state can improve accessibility for voters with disabilities now by paying more attention to physical access on Election Day, creating and supporting better transportation options, and simplifying and updating electronic absentee ballot delivery and return for those who qualify,” Waterland writes.
