National Disability Voter Registration Week
July 13-July 17, 2020
Every year, the REV UP Campaign coordinates National Disability Voter Registration Week (NDVRW) to increase the political power of people with disabilities by sharing resources and getting people registered to vote. With an estimated 35 million people with disabilities eligible to vote in 2020, state and local organizations are invited to participate in NDVRW in order to raise the disability voice and civic participation across the country. For more information, visit the American Association of People with Disabilities website.

From The Arc Oregon:
When you vote, you choose who represents the disability community. You have the power to choose who represents you in your local, state, and national government. We want to make sure that all people with disabilities can exercise their right to vote this election. The first step to voting is learning about the issues and candidates. Presidential debates and forums can help you learn from candidates where they stand on issues that matter to you.
