Convention officials on the scene did what they could to accomodate this delegate. They found seating above the area where other WHHF delegates were seated – and when it came time to vote, the tellers went to her to record her choice.
Despite these accomodations, the end result was that this delegate could not sit with other delegates from her senate district. Part of the purpose of going to a convention like this is to interact with fellow activists from neighboring communities. This delegate was denied that opportunity.
The Democratic Party – and particularly, the Democratic State Committee – needs to do a better job in accommodating the needs of the disabled – especially given its stated support in favor of these issues.
