This November, all 40 seats of the Virginia Senate and all 100 seats of the Virginia House of Delegates will be on the ballot, as well as many local offices. Due to redistricting, new districts have been drawn, and some voting locations changed. ECI is working with REV UP Virginia (Register, Educate, Vote, Use your Power) and local organizations to celebrate Disability Voting Rights Week.
On Saturday, September 9th, from 11:00am – 3:00pm, ECI will host an event with REV UP Virginia, where Virginians with disabilities can register to vote, confirm their new district, learn about accessible voting and mail-in ballots, and even see an accessible voting machine! There will also be an open forum to discuss why our vote matters. ASL Interpreters will be available. For other accommodation needs, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s SHOW THE POWER OF THE DISABILITY VOTE and make sure WE’RE HEARD in EVERY election. YOU have the POWER to MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
The national REV UP campaign is a program of the American Association of People with Disabilities. Visit About REV UP – AAPD for more information.
