One in four people eligible to vote has a disability. If people with disabilities voted at the same rate as people without disabilities, there would be 2.35 million more voters. We want you to have the information you need to Get Out the Vote next election and make your voice heard.

If you have a disability-related question that is not answered here or on our resources page, please contact us.
