Polling places across the country have been made accessible again this Election Day with the help of wheelchair ramps provided by Amramp.
Brett McKee, Amramp Los Angeles and his team installed over 133 feet of steel, modular ramp systems to six polling places in Los Angeles, North Hollywood, Torrance, Redondo Beach, Santa Monica and South Gate.
Amramp Los Angeles installers began installing ramps Saturday, November 1 to insure the ramps will be in place in time for Election Day. Beginning on Wednesday, November 5, these ramps will be disassembled and returned to the warehouse for use in other future rental applications.
The Amramp Boston Team installed ten temporary wheelchair ramps throughout the greater Boston area as well.
Brett said, “We are pleased to help ensure all citizens can participate in the election process again this year. It is gratifying to see people using the ramps at various precincts including churches, synagogues, homes, schools and community centers. They otherwise may not have been able to participate in their right to vote because of the inability to climb stairs.”
Municipalities across the US can rent ADA compliant wheelchair ramps from Amramp just for one day to help their citizens vote on Election Day.
