Accessibility MapA polling station map that shows which station can be easily accessed by people in wheelchairs and also shows with which voting mechanisms a station is equipped. Creating awareness and giving information on billboards, sport events, malls, lobbies.
Similar to the London tube map - it could have clear icons that tell you with one look if a station has disabled access and to which extend it does.
The map could also be a way of creating sensibility and awareness and at the same time giving vital information to those in need:
- It could be printed and sent to voters before election day as part of the voting
- It could be posted around town on giant billboards
- It could be projected on screens at sport events
- It could be hung in public spaces, malls, or lobbies
- It could be printed with braille dots for blind people
After listening to the Global Issue video posted by Daniel, I believe this will also help to lower the mental barrier for people with limitations to actually go voting without having the fear of being embarrassed.
How will this concept improve election accessibility for everyone?
How well does this concept adapt to the changing needs of different voter communities?
In countries where this is not possible, the map could be redesigned to be used in a campaign to highlight the necessity of being able to switch polling station. Especially if they are not all equipped with the same standards
