    Four years ago my son (paraplegic) tried to vote in Palm Beach County (Boca Raton) in person. The precinct was not handicap accessible. Someone lifted his chair into the precinct.

    Two years ago he tried to vote absentee. He was told two weeks after the election that his vote had not been counted because his signature did not match the signature on his registration. (He registered to vote "on leave" from Jackson Memorial Hospital, and may have been shaky.)

    So Tuesday we try to vote in person again. If the precinct is still not accessible, the movie will follow!

      Or ask Randi Rhodes to help.

      If he can stand the limelight, make it a PR event and file an ADA suit.

      Start with these and scout to see if any are ada accessible before inviting a camera crew. If they are not, get footage of the steps or other barrier at each one.
