If you’re a person with a disability, you might have questions and concerns about voting. Maybe you think your vote doesn’t matter, or you’ve been discouraged to vote by the people in your life. Or maybe you just can’t get to the polling place. As you’ll hear Imani point out, “If people with disabilities voted at the same rate as non-disabled voters, 2 million more votes would be cast.” So what is getting in the way of voters with disabilities exercising their rights?
These issues and more are addressed in Vote for Access, a new series to jumpstart a national conversation on what these barriers are and how to fix them. This series explains the systemic problems and some of the solutions that we can all work towards.
