Battleground: Ballot Box


It’s been nearly three years since a failed attempt to overturn Georgia’s presidential results. Now, a grand jury in Atlanta will soon decide if former President Donald Trump and his allies will face criminal charges for their actions. In this special season of Battleground: Ballot Box, Georgia Public Broadcasting political reporter Stephen Fowler continues to track the fight for who we vote for and how those votes are counted with an in-depth look at historic investigation into election interference, from incitement to indictments.

    With Important information and cogent analysis, the B:BB paints a detailed picture of the Georgia election field in a mere 15 minutes. Although I live in Florida, I watch Georgia elections because Georgia is a battleground state that’s in the midst of auspicious change. I’m envious. Thank you GPB and Skip Fowler for a great podcast.

    Can you cover inaccessibility in elections?
    As a disabled person who experienced physical inaccessibility of voting buildings and systems in 2018, I also saw other disabled voters struggle. We don’t have paper ballots anymore, and the Dominion machines make voting inaccessible to many people with disabilities (not just visual, movement disorder disabilities). When I gave the DeKalb County Voting Commission board NCIL accessible voting guideline handouts, it declined them. Chairman Tillman accused me of faking an inability to stand and walk after a period of time, tried to deny my desire to file accessibility complaints on behalf of myself and another disabled voter, and told me to “stand up and go find the real disabled voters” who may have complaints. The outside of the building, without seating, Dir. Hamilton said was the responsibility of the federal government and therefore seating was not their responsibility. There were two wheelchairs, one front and one back, that were manual, despite our needs for our own mobility aids, which make us reliant on staff. And of course the booth aisles were so narrow that no other voters could be voting while we were. The AJC covered my 2018 experience. I have heard so many disabled voter complaints from over the years, before and since. I can only imagine the dangers and inaccessibility Covid adds. Please press harder, or nothing we’ve worked for will ever be achieved.
