Finally, the VAEHA applies only to federal elections.
VAEHA requires that registration facilities and polling places be accessible only to people with physical disabilities and the elderly; no mention is made of people with hearing, visual, or mental challenges.
In 1984, Congress passed the Voting Accessibility for the Elderly and Handicapped Act (VAEHA), which required polling places and voter registration facilities to be accessible to people with physical disabilities.
Since VAEHA did not set a standard for accessibility, it was up to each state or jurisdiction to provide access.
