Flint Agrees to Increase Accessibility at Polling Sites

See this article by that title in the Detroit Free Press.  It begins:
The City of Flint has agreed to make polling places more accessible for the mobility impaired in time for the November presidential election, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Detroit announced today.

Acting on a complaint, the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division conducted a study which showed a substantial number of Flint polling places were not accessible to people in wheelchairs.

The city recently signed a legal document pledging to make all of its polling places accessible to the mobility impaired head off a federal lawsuit. The agreement is designed to bring Flint into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
