Tomorrow, the entire House of Representatives and a third of the Senate are up for election. Disability advocates are strongly encouraged to vote in this election. The future of disability policy will greatly be determined by the results of this election and the leadership in the 112th Congress.
In order to get out as many voters as possible, the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) is sponsoring the Disability Vote Project (DVP), which offers a toll free number to provide comprehensive support for voters with disabilities: 1-866-OUR-VOTE. DVP aims to get people with disabilities registered to vote; strives to educate them on how to get to their polling places and what their rights are at the polling places; and works to make polling places accessible to voters with all disabilities.
