16. Ramp and doorways wide enough for wheel chairs too.

In fairness, HAVA provides funds for that sort of thing. But the downside is the reduction in the number of polling places.

How much does that disruption contribute to lower turnout, longer lines, increased (and insecure) early and absentee voting?

And it would be interesting to get an idea how many people use the accessible machines. In my precinct, it may not yet have been used in the 2 or 3 times it's been deployed. :shrug:
