The Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against Harris County saying that many election polling places are inaccessible to people with disabilities (for example, people who are wheelchair users, blind, deaf).
If you have had any problems with inaccessible polling places anywhere in Harris County, please let us know as soon as possible. You can contact Sandra Bookman at HCIL at 713.974.4621 Voice/TTY or you can file a complaint form online at https://www.justice.gov/usao-sdtx/civil-division/civil-rights-section.
If you see any accessibility problems in the November 8, 2016 election, or during early voting, please be sure to contact HCIL: 713.974.4621 Voice/TTY or file a complaint right away.
