Do You Have a Plan? Resources for Voters with Disabilities

Easter Seals, one of the leading national advocacy organizations for people with disabilities, has prepared a helpful checklist to ensure that all eligible voters can vote. The organization has partnered with the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) on a campaign called REV UP to ensure that Americans with disabilities can fully participate in the political process. The campaign is about much more than a a presidential election every four years -- "REV UP" stands for "Register, Educate, Vote, and Use Your Power."

Read and print the one-page checklist here, and download a voting resource card with important phone numbers. You'll also find tips for finding your polling place and making arrangements for curbside voting, mobile voting at long-term care facilities, and getting transportation on election day -- as well as specific links for topics including deaf and hard of hearing, blind or low vision, mobility, and intellectual and developmental disabilities.
