The Municipal Elections Act, 1996, as amended (MEA), requires the Clerk to have regard for the needs of electors and candidates with disabilities and to ensure that all voting places are accessible to all electors. The MEA also holds a requirement for the Clerk to report within 90 days of a regular election about the identification, removal and prevention of barriers that affect electors and candidates.

Each Election Accessibility Report and Plan is based on recommendations from previous reports.
