"Part of the work we do in advocating for people with disabilities is securing their voting rights," said Disability Law Center advocate Chris Serrrano. "Otherwise, people who have physical, visual and sometimes intellectual disabilities won't be able to vote if they don't have access to a polling place, so it's important."
Sherri Newton, director of the center's voting access program, said volunteers and advocates will visit polling places in 14 Utah counties Tuesday, partly to follow up previous visits when access issues were identified and to assist voters and poll workers.
The agency is also asking voters with disabilities to share their voting experiences on its website.
"We want to hear the good and bad," Newton said.
The information will help refine future advocacy efforts and help county clerks better meet the needs of voters.
