Washington, D.C., Nov. 6 – Below you will find two up-to-the-minute resources to help you this election:
- Straight Q&A’s with candidates on disability issues organized by state. If you do not see a candidate from a senate or gubernatorial race, or local candidates in New York City and Los Angeles, it is because the candidate chose not to answer the questionnaire. RespectAbility is nonpartisan and all candidates were given an equal chance to make voters aware of their views on disability issues.
- Apps and information on where to vote, how to vote and who to contact if there is an issue. As voters go to the polls, it is vital to know that voters with disabilities have every right to vote. If you have a problem voting due to lack of access for disability, contact 866-OUR-VOTE, or other resources listed below, immediately. Please let us know as well by emailing LaurenA@RespectAbility.org.
Now please go vote! The disability community is 56 million citizens strong. Show your power at the ballot box!
RespectAbility and The RespectAbility Report are nonpartisan and do not endorse candidates. The questionnaire is purely for educational purposes. Below are links to detailed answers to the questionnaire. Every major party candidate for senate and governor, as well as local candidates in New York City and Los Angeles, was given an equal opportunity to address these issues and if they are not listed, it is because they declined to answer.
