Courage Center asks voters who have disabilities to complete survey on barriers to voting

After all the fuss about voting problems in the U.S.

After all the fuss about voting problems in the U.S. Senate race, Courage Center now wants to look at barriers that might make it harder for people with disabilities to vote.

The organization, based in Golden Valley, is a rehabilitation and resource center specializing in treating brain and spinal cord injuries, stroke, chronic pain, autism, and disabilities experienced since birth.

It’s asking voters with disabilities to fill out an online survey to help determine what kinds of barriers might have affected or prevented voting in the November election. It says the results will be used “to assist efforts to reduce barriers to voting.”

The dozen questions are mostly yes or no, with a couple asking for short comments.
