The Justice Department today reached an agreement with the city of Concord, New Hampshire, to resolve a complaint alleging that the city violated Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by failing to provide an accessible ballot to a voter who is blind.

Under the agreement, the city of Concord will provide voting machines that are accessible to voters who are blind or visually impaired.  The city will have the accessible machines at its polling places starting in the November 2019 city election.  In addition, the city will provide training to poll workers on the use of the accessible voting machines and will develop educational materials regarding the availability of the machines in city elections.
