Disability Law Spurs Elections by Mail

See this article by that title in the Pensacola News-Journal. It begins:

When Escambia County residents decide this fall whether they want to extend the local option sales tax, they'll be able to vote from home for the first time in county history. The mail-ballot election was prompted in part by a federal law that requires each precinct before fall elections to be equipped with voting machines adapted for the disabled and every polling place to comply with access standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
