Colorado County, TX Election Website Accessibility
On November 6, 2023, the Justice Department issued Letters of Findings to four Texas counties--Colorado, Runnels, Smith, and Upton--under Title II of the ADA after investigating complaints alleging that the counties maintain election websites that discriminate against people with vision or manual disabilities. The websites provide important voting information and registration requirements. Because of the election websites’ inaccessibility, the counties deny people with disabilities equal access to election programs and online services provided through these websites and fail to ensure effective communication for people with disabilities. The department asked the counties to work with the Civil Rights Division and the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices for the Eastern, Northern, Southern and Western Districts of Texas to resolve the civil rights violations identified.
