SPRINGFIELD — The Illinois governor has signed a law making voting easier for persons with disabilities and creating a group to study the removal of further barriers.

The law Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed Monday makes necessary adjustments for a new primary election date.

It was moved from March 15 to June 28 because late Census numbers delayed drawing new congressional district boundaries. Under the law, any polling place that is accessible to voters with disabilities and elderly voters shall include at least one voting booth that is wheelchair accessible.

The Access to Voting for Persons with Disabilities Advisory will have 15 members and publish its findings.
