I have the right to take part in civic life.
We are actively fighting for the fair and civic inclusion of people with disabilities in every political, social, and economic front. REV Up aims to increase the number of people with disabilities who vote. We have what you need to Register to Vote, to get Educated on the issues, and to Vote. We are non-partisan, and invite voters of any party to join our efforts.
Disability issues need your support. Who you vote for impacts your access to healthcare, education, transportation and the list goes on. We need your vote! Register to vote and sign up with REV UP. Join our voices as we support disability issues.
Why is the Disability Vote so important?
Watch this 2016 video from the Disability Law Center – Your vote is even more important today.
2020 National Disability Voter Registration Week -> July 13 – 17
2020 has presented new challenges to the usual voter registration drives. We are relying on our partners more than ever to encourage their communities to register and vote. AAPD has some great tools – remote interactions are key. Add voter registration questions to your regular interactions, and voter registration news to your social media posts!
The American Association for People with Disabilities has assembled many ideas and resources for registering people to vote. What is your organization doing? Visit aapd.org and learn more about NDVRW!
