Think globally, act locally

As a voter, it is your responsibility to learn about the candidates and issues that will appear on your ballot.

We are fortunate in Massachusetts because generally, our elected officials are approachable and willing to meet with constituent groups, and talk about issues and concerns.

In the months leading up to an election, most candidates are especially visible; there may be many opportunities to meet them, to form an opinion on their values and to share your concerns with them. Watch the media, and look at candidate websites for upcoming events.

By getting educated on disability topics, getting to know your elected officials and candidates, educating them on disabilities, and coming together as a group, we can get our issues into the mainstream. But – we can’t do that if we don’t vote.
