This week’s Election Central post reports on the experiences of voters with disabilities in recent national elections.

But for the estimated one in six voters who have a disability, the voting process can be more complicated (and often more difficult).

Why is that, and what can we do to close the gap for voters with disabilities even further? Here, Election Central takes a closer look.
