(FLINT, Mich.) -- The city of Flint, Mich. and the Justice Department have reached an agreement for the city to make all of its polling locations more accessible for voters with mobility impairments.
The settlement was reached under the Americans with Disabilities Act following a complaint by the Michigan Protection and Advocacy Service.
In a release Monday, the Justice Department said under the agreement, "the city of Flint recognizes that accessible polling places are the cornerstone of its voting accessibility program and will make all of its polling places accessible to people with disabilities by the November 2012 elections."
Officials said accessibility will also be a main factor in choosing polling locations in the future.
