Dear City/Town Clerk,
I am writing to tell you of my disappointment regarding my inaccessible voting experience on ________ (the date of the election). I notified you on ______(date), before the election, that I needed an accommodation to vote and requested that an accessible voting system be available to use. When I got to my polling place, there was no accessible way for me to vote privately and independently. I am willing to share further details with you.
New Hampshire citizens have the right to vote independently, privately, and with a secret ballot in federal, state, and local elections. Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act establish specific protections and require that equal access is provided for people with disabilities, including the right to vote. Because I was denied an accessible means to vote, I plan to file an ADA complaint with the U.S. Department of Justice and notify the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office of my experience.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
