Accessible Voting

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.


DRNC’s non-partisan voting project, Access the Vote NC, focuses on making voting accessible and available to people with disabilities. 

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