Loyola-LA Legal Studies Paper No. 2008-15
In this testimony before the US Senate Special Committee on Aging, I discuss challenges faced by elderly voters and voters with disabilities when they vote. This includes difficulties these voters may encounter at the polling place as well as problems and opportunities with the practice of absentee voting. I conclude by suggesting how vigorous enforcement and implementation of federal laws, combined with some law reform, can and should create more equal voting opportunities for older voters and voters with disabilities in the election of 2008 and beyond.
