Voting Resources

Thousands of people with disabilities in Indiana are waiting for services. Medicaid recipients face cutbacks. Too many Hoosiers with disabilities are unemployed. These issues, and many others, are why citizens with disabilities – you – need to get involved in elections. Policymakers make decisions that impact most aspects of your daily life, so you need to have a say. Exercising your right to vote gives you a voice in this process. 

Do you know your voting rights? Are you interested in helping others register to vote? Use the resources listed below to make sure your voice is heard this Election Day on Tuesday, November 8th.
