Ohio makes a Sustainable Transition with SafePath's ADA Approved, 100% Recycled EntryLevel(TM) Landings for Universal Voter Access
CHICO, Calif., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- For nearly 40 million of-voting-age Americans with a disability, casting their ballot is not just a decision of who to vote for, rather, an issue of how to vote at all. Despite federal and state regulations mandating compliance for universal access, millions of voting American's will be left to determine whether the nearest polling center can accommodate their wheelchair, crutches, or walker. Making a sustainable shift towards universal access, the state of Ohio approved use of SafePath(TM) Products' EntryLevel(TM) Landings to ensure that for this Election and those to come, voters of all ages and physical capacity have equal opportunity to exercise their right to vote.
To bring Ohio polling centers up to par, an Ohio representative chose cost-effective SafePath(TM) Products, producers of 'green' EntryLevel(TM) Landings made from 100% post-consumer recycled tires. SafePath CEO, Mr. Tim Vander Heiden, was honored. "We were thrilled to help the State of Ohio reach code compliance at many of their polling centers. Our products offer durable, versatile, sustainable solutions - the benefit is two-fold, universal access, and a healthier, cleaner planet."
Placed in over 50 counties thus far, SafePath's EntryLevel(TM) Landings are expected to be installed over the next 5 years at polling centers across the state. As Baby Boomers reach older age, voter accessibility will grow in importance. Lucky for Ohio, they are set for the long haul with SafePath's sustainable solutions. "Every American deserves an equal opportunity to participate and vote on Election Day, and with SafePath(TM) Products, they will be able to do so with dignity and ease."
