Disability and How to Vote (USA)

Many people who are disabled often use their disability as an excuse not to vote. If poor vision or limited mobility make voting at the regular polling place difficult or impossible, try using an Absentee Ballot!

Call or write your state Registar of Voters' office, and have them mail you an absentee ballot for the November election. Fill it out (there are instructions, and if you have an aide they may be able to help you), and be sure to mail it in *before* the election. I believe many states have deadlines for receiving absentee ballots, so be sure to get it in on time.

Save yourself the trouble of dealing with crowds and little bitty type. Take more time to look over the ballot and make your choices. Avoid any question you might have about the touch screen voting machines.

Arrange for your absentee ballot today! Make your voices heard!
