As co-counsel at the Maryland Disability Law Center, 2003 OSI Community Fellow Dale Reid represented a disabled veteran who had to pull himself and his wheelchair up five stairs in order to be able to vote. This action motivated Reid, a wheelchair user who was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy in 1970, to develop his fellowship—Baltimore Votes—working with disabled volunteers and the Baltimore City Board of Elections to help make the city’s polling places handicap-accessible. At the beginning of his fellowship, there were more than 100 voting locations that could pose problems for disabled people. By the end of the grant, there were only 11; by 2005, when Reid passed away, there were none. Read his obituary in the Baltimore Sun.
