CIDNY-Center for the Independence of the Disabled, NY has over 35 years of advocating for people with disabilities. Our efforts have brought about important changes. There is more work to be done and we need your help.

We need volunteers in every borough. You will receive training on surveying polling sites on October 26th from 2pm to 4pm. The training will take place at our Manhattan offices (841 Broadway, Suite 301, New York, NY 10003) 2 weeks before the election on November 8th.

You will be teamed up with another volunteer to complete the survey forms. This involves measuring ramps, doorways and entrance lips. Each team is assigned approximately 5 sites in close proximity.

Please email Mary Jane Wolper at if you would like to help.
