The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities, in the areas of employment, transportation, public accommodation, communications, and governmental activities. An advocacy group and several voters who have a visual impairment are suing the state of Ohio’s election chief. What is the reason? They believe Ohio is in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act when it comes to discriminating blind individuals who wish to participate in a governmental activity, such as voting. They are claiming blind voters are unable to vote privately and independently, in addition to not providing an accessible website.
