It’s National Disability Voter Registration Week – make sure your vote counts!
Did you know there was a surge in people with disabilities voting in 2018?!

While this is exciting news, people with disabilities continue to face many barriers to voting – from transportation, to guardianship, to accessibility of their polling location, and more. Because of this, the voter turnout rate is still lower for people with disabilities.

The first step to continuing to increase turnout and breaking down barriers is making sure we are registered to vote!

Each year, the REV UP campaign, through the American Association for People with Disabilities, organizes National Disability Voter Registration Week (NDVRW) to promote registration and civic engagement among people with disabilities.

Here are three things you can do this week to make the #DisabilityVote count:

  1. Make sure YOU are registered to vote.
  2. Encourage your friends and family to register!
  3. Spread the word on social media by sharing these sample posts this week:
