Last week, we urged you to go vote. Now the National Council on Disability (NCD) and the National Disability Rights Network (NDRN) are collaborating with EIN SOF Communications, Inc., to help learn more about your voting experiences!

If you voted, NCD would like you to complete a brief, open-ended questionnaire about your voting experiences. The questionnaire focuses on any physical, attitudinal, or other barriers you may have faced when going to the polls to vote. NCD will use your answers from the questionnaire to issue a report based on the findings early next year.

Four years ago, in 2008, the Government Accounting Office (GAO) found that only 27% of polling places were fully accessible. According to the Federal Election Commission, more than 20,000 polling places across the United States were inaccessible. This is a violation of state and federal laws and deprives people with disabilities their right to vote. NCD is asking to hear your stories from this year’s election to know how accessible voting compares to four years ago.

Click here to participate in the survey and help bring awareness to accessible voting. You can submit the survey electronically, or print a hard copy of the questionnaire and mail it to NDRN. If you have any questions, call NDRN at 202-408-9514, ext 130. Thank you for sharing your experiences from the polls last week!

Please note that the National MS Society is a nonpartisan organization that neither supports nor opposes any political party or candidate for office.
