During NDVRW, September 13-20, 2021, we plan to share voting information on our social networks. If you are not connected with us – please click the social icons at the bottom of this post to do so now.
NDVRW is a national, nonpartisan campaign to register, educate, and prepare voters who have disabilities for the 2021 elections and beyond. NDVRW is coordinated by the American Association of People with Disabilities’ (AAPD) REV UP Voting Campaign. REV UP stands for Register! Educate! Vote! Use your Power!
The disability vote has never been more powerful. Despite being twice as likely to face voting barriers as people who do not have disabilities, voters who have disabilities have continued to demonstrate their political power each election. Last election, amid a pandemic, over 17 million people who have disabilities cast their ballots.
Our vote is powerful, and we will not give it up. One in four adults in America live with a disability, and we need more of them to participate in elections. Together, we can hold our leaders accountable to make decisions that ensure people who have disabilities have equal access to employment, community living, education, transportation, healthcare, and more.
We are sharing this information in partnership with the REV UP Campaign. For more information on the REV UP Campaign, National Disability Voter Registration Week, and other civic engagement and state-specific resources, visit aapd.com/NDVRW.
