Election Board Enters Settlement Agreement with Justice Department on Accessible Polling Places

The Chicago Election Board has entered a settlement agreement after a 10-month joint effort with the U.S. Justice Department and Chicago-based Equip for Equality to evaluate the physical accessibility of polling places and Early Voting sites. The Board anticipates that several hundred precinct polling sites will need some forms of permanent or temporary modifications or will need to be re-located.
