What voters with disabilities told us about their voting experience when choosing our President

 

SABE’s Voter Project just released their 2016 Report on the voting experiences of 810 voters with disabilities from 40 states.  The vote survey was done in partnership with self advocacy groups and Disability Rights organizations.  One of their jobs is to help people with disabilities with voting problems and questions.

SABE promised that they would share your honest and specific answers with election officials and legislators.  These are the people who can take what you recommended to make future elections better.

What makes this report different from others is that it had first-hand comments from voters. The voters told us that the responsibility to vote is shared:

  • the voter must prepare to vote

  • the local election officials must make voting safe and accessible

  • the laws must provide guidelines to make this happen

Please feel free to share this report with others at www.govoter.org  We want to let others know that the right to vote is not equal to all citizens.  If you would like to become more involved with this project and/or would like to learn more about it, please contact Essie Pederson, essie.pederson@gmail.com or Teresa Moore, mooreadvocacy@hotmail.com
