2022 Disability and Voting Podcast Series: Your Voice, Your Vote
As we approached the 2022 Elections, we wanted to focus in on all things disability and voting. The disability community makes up a fourth of the population, making it a very powerful voting block! Even though this is a huge voting group, there are many structural and interpersonal barriers set up against them. These issues disincentive disabled voters from exercising their civil right to vote.
Despite these barriers, historically, the disability community has been incredibly resilient and fierce voting advocates. In this series, we talk with advocates who have made accessible voting possible in Florida, organizations that fight for the disability community and other marginalized communities’ access to vote, and folks who study the impact of the disability vote.
