This week, September 11-15, 2023, is the week to make sure disabled voters in your community are registered and ready to vote.
What is Disability Voting Rights Week (DVRW)?
There are over 38 million people with disabilities who are eligible to vote, but access barriers keep many disabled voters from accessing their right to vote. Disability Voting Rights Week is all about protecting the rights of people with disabilities to participate fully in our democracy.
Disability Voting Rights used to be called “National Disability Voter Registration Week” and is hosted by the American Association of People with Disabilities’ REV UP Voting Campaign.
Celebrate with us at our Disability Elections Summit!
