If people with disabilities voted at the same rate as non-disabled voters, 2 million more votes would be cast. What is getting in the way of disabled voters exercising their rights?
That's what host Imani Barbarin uncovers in Vote for Access, a five-part series addressing the problems with voting for people with disabilities, and some solutions that everyone should know about. For transcripts of these videos, click here or see below for download links for both English and Spanish.
Our goal is to push for better resources, funding, and awareness to improve accessibility and outreach for disabled voters. For more information, comments or questions, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
