TODAY, Monday, October 19th is the last day to register to vote. If you haven’t registered yet click the button above and register now.
Voting is our voice in our democracy. Using that voice is the way we each make our own decisions about what we want for our country. These decisions are complex for all of us, so much so that sometimes people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) are sometimes left out. It doesn’t need to be this way.
The Disability Vote California coalition created two helpful guides, one for family members and supporters, and one for service providers. The guides offer practical advice and resources on how to use Supported Decision-Making to help the people with I/DD in your life make their own choices in this and every other election. You can find the guides here:
- Supported Decision-Making Empower Their Right to Vote! (Family Members and Supporters)
- Supported Decision-Making Empower Their Right to Vote! (Service Providers)
A democracy is at its strongest when every voice is heard with equal clarity. This must include the voices of people with I/DD. Please support the voters with disabilities in your life as there is no easier way to make an immediate, positive impact than through the power of our vote.
