Establish or Join the 'REV UP' Disability Voting Coalition in your State

The purpose of REV UP State Disability Voting Coalitions is to influence election and policy outcomes at the local, state, and national level. We have Coalitions established and developing in 21 states and are working to expand to more! We are looking for leaders who can pull together and organize advocates in their state to work together around voter registration and engagement activities and help establish a strong, diverse Coalition. The 2018 midterm elections are one year away - contact us at zbaldwin@aapd.com if you are interested in getting involved.

Encourage Others to REV UP and Get Out The Vote

People with disabilities accounted for nearly 17% of eligible voters in 2016. When we include our families, we account for 25% of the total electorate. 

We can influence our family, friends, advocates, educators, professionals, providers, and bureaucrats to vote in favor of disability rights!
