The Wisconsin Disability Vote Coalition invites you to join with us to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA is a federal civil rights law that provides protections to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. Title II of the ADA requires state and local governments (“public entities”) to ensure that people with disabilities have a full and equal opportunity to vote. The ADA’s provisions apply to all aspects of voting, including voter registration, site selection, and the casting of ballots, whether on Election Day or during an early voting process. The ADA protects the rights of people with disabilities to participate in one of the most fundamental rights of our democracy – the right to vote.
Join Us for a Webinar - July 7, 2020, 12:00 p.m. –1:00 p.m.
This webinar is to inform people who serve Wisconsinites with disabilities and older adults about voting barriers, and to share strategies and resources their organizations can use to help their members overcome them.
