State and local elections affect many important aspects of our communities. Unfortunately, voter turnout for local elections is consistently low, leaving many voices unheard. Let's make sure our elected officials pay attention to the power of the DISABILITY VOTE and the needs of our community!

Your vote matters - make yourself heard on Election Day!

People with disabilities accounted for nearly 17% of eligible voters in 2016. When we include our families, we account for 25% of the total electorate.
