Americans with Disabilities, Unite (to Vote)!

The primary election on August 30 is quickly approaching, and the November presidential election will be here before we know it. Some people with disabilities may think their votes don't really make a difference, but they do! According to a recent USA Today article (, there are more eligible voters with disabilities (35.4 million) than African-American voters (28.7 million) and Latino voters (29.5 million).

So, people with handicaps can have a significant impact on elections and therefore should vote. Take the time to do research on the candidates and decide which ones you think should be elected. If it's too much trouble for you to go to the polls, you can sign up for an absentee ballot that is sent to your home. Now, go exercise your right to vote!
