Co-Sponsored by Widener’s Law and Inequality Project, the Public Interest Resource Center and the Delaware ACLU-Student chapter. Through partnership with the Delaware Disabilities Law Program, and in cooperation with the Delaware Board of Elections, participants in the ADA Poll Survey Project will survey polling places during Delaware’s November 2 national election, to assess compliance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Participants will complete a “Polling Place Accessibility Checklist” for each polling site visited; accessibility issues may be addressed on-on-site, or may be reported to the Board of Elections.

Training: Thursday October 21 at noon, Room 248 Law Building (or via videotape) (DVD available on reserve in the Library)

Field Work: November 2.

Pro Bono Credits: 2 hours training; 1-5 hours field work; 1 hour post-project survey.

Credits may also be used toward completion of the Spring 2011 Martin Luther King Semester of Service.

Training will be provided by attorneys from the Delaware Disabilities Law Program.

Students interested in participating should contact Jordan Mickman at jgmickman@mail.widener.edu, Dr. Sydney Howe-Barksdale at sthowe-barksdale@widener.edu, or Professor Bob Hayman at robert.hayman@verizon.net.
