Harris County agrees to provide accessible voting program

This week, the Justice Department reached an agreement with Harris County, Texas, to provide accessible polling places.
Harris County has the third largest voting program with over 750 polling places, according to a Justice Department news release.
The Justice Department filed a lawsuit against Harris county alleging that there were barriers to polling places including cracks in the sidewalks, steep ramps, locked gates and other obstacles making it difficult for voters with mobility and visual impairments.
