Accessibility at the Polls Survey Project Seeking Volunteers

Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid's Disability Law Center in conjunction with the Minnesota Secretary of State's Office will be conducting a survey of polling locations across Minnesota evaluating physical accessibility and other accommodations. They are seeking volunteers to help with this effort. Volunteers must be available to attend an in-person training and commit to visiting a minimum of 3 polling locations between August 7 and August 14. At each polling location a 40-question survey must be completed by the volunteer. Following a site visit, volunteers are asked to upload the information to a website within 48 hours to allow for compilation and analysis of the results.

If you are interested, MMLA will be hosting training sessions in Minneapolis Friday, June 29, from 1 - 3 p.m. and Wednesday, July 18, from 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. To sign up please use this form. You can find more information here and contact Pro Bono Director Kirsten Olson with questions at or 612-746-3705.
