Collectively, more than 450,000 Iowans living with disabilities can make a significant impact on the public policies and practices that affect their daily lives.
Iowans with Disabilities in Action works to remove the barriers that exist and prevent those with disabilities from fully obtaining the information, resources and access to become actively engaged in civic and political processes. The goal is to develop a disability voting bloc that is recognized statewide as having influence over public policy decisions.
Below are materials we have put together for you to educate yourself and others about voting.
July 16-20, 2018, is National Disability Voter Registration Week, a national effort to make the disability vote more influential. The REV UP Campaign coordinates this week to make a concerted effort to get people with disabilities registered to vote, educated about this year’s election and prepared to cast a ballot in November. Iowans with Disabilities in Action along with the REV UP Campaign has made available information and materials to help people successfully participate in this effort.
