People with disabilities face many challenges and barriers to voting and do not vote at the same rate as people without disabilities.

If they did, there would be 2.35 million more voters. DRNC's voting project focuses on making voting accessible and available to people with disabilities. We want you have the information you need to Get Out the Vote this election and make your voice heard. Learn more below.

Why is voting important?

Sign reads: Your Vote Matters

When you vote, you help choose who will be in charge of our country, state and your city.

The people we elect make decisions that affect our laws. They make decisions about things like health care, education, and budgets that fund supports and services. It is important that more people with disabilities vote so that your voice is heard. Voting is how to make sure that the people in office support the rights and well-being of people with disabilities.
