|Many of the documents on this page are in PDF format.
The Michigan Department of State has received nearly $700,000 from the Department of Health and Human Services to improve accessibility to and participation in the elections process for voters with disabilities. The grant program is funded through the Help America Vote Act of 2002. The Secretary of State's Bureau of Elections is responsible for overseeing the grant process.
The funds have been allocated to assist cities and townships with making improvements to the buildings used as polling places so that the buildings are in compliance with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act as it pertains to polling places.
