WATCH: Rutgers expert on possible high turnout among voters with disabilities

Historically, many polling places have not been fully accessible

The expansion of mail-in voting this November might just target more than COVID-19 safety. A new report from Rutgers University finds more than 800,000 New Jersey residents with disabilities will now be able to vote. It could result in higher turnout among voters with mobility problems, but it doesn’t work for everyone, notably people with visual impairments. Doug Kruse, co-director of the program for disability research at Rutgers, discusses the findings of the report with Anchor Briana Vannozzi.
