Free transportation to the polls is available, in Erie County, for voters with disabilities.
But time has run out to make a reservation. Independence Express Director Cathy Colicchia says calls were accepted until 4:30 p.m. Election Day. Colicchia says people with mobility issues can request a wheelchair-accessible van.
"We are able to go in and get them, bring them out if they use a wheelchair, if their house is accessible, or where they live is accessible. We cannot help anyone up or downstairs unfortunately." And Colicchia says, "we can take them until the polls close (at 9 p.m.). If they call me before 4:30 and say, 'I want to go at 7 O'clock.' I can send a van at 7 O'clock to get them," Colicchia said.
