Self-advocates – are you going to vote? Tell us your story

This election year, The Arc has been on a mission to highlight the importance of voting to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), their families, and everyone who supports our issues through the “We’ve Got the Power” campaign.

Now we want to hear from self-advocates about their experience getting involved in our democratic process. Are you registered to vote? Have you experienced any obstacles to registering, or accessing information about the election process in your community? Are you excited to vote? Is this your first time? Why is it important for you as a self-advocate to participate in the election?

If you are a self-advocate with a story to share, or know someone whom we could talk to, please contact Kristen McKiernan or Sarah Bal.
