REV UP Election Accessibility Toolkit
People with disabilities accounted for over 35 million eligible voters in 2016 (that number jumps to over 62 million eligible voters when you count family members in the same household) according to Rutgers University. The disability community has incredible potential to influence the outcome of elections and ensure that all candidates address issues that are important to people with disabilities. Rutgers University also found that, in 2012, 30% of people with disabilities reported difficulty in voting compared to 8% of people without disabilities.
This Election Accessibility Toolkit is a tool to assist disability advocacy organizations and individual advocates when working with voters and election officials. It also includes information on troubleshooting problems encountered on Election Day, reporting barriers, and additional resources.
