Become a Disability Voting Rights Week Library Partner

VoteLibraries is a proud partner of Disability Voting Rights Week (DVRW), held on September 9-13, 2024. Library partners help create or refine educational and informational outreach resources for local disability groups about voter registration, conduct on-site voter registration events during DVRW with nonpartisan partner organizations, when available under local law, consider training library staff to become Registrars of Voters to facilitate on-site voter registration throughout the year, conduct civic education events, facilitate candidate forums on disability issues, promote digital organizing, and engage with elected officials about protecting disability voting rights. Our Library Guide for Disability Voting Rights Week will be available soon.
