Sometimes the problem with accessible voting information is that you simply can’t find it While more people with disabilities are voting, there is still a stubbornly persistent voting participation gap between people with and without disabilities, according to Doug Kruse and Lisa Shur’s research for the U.S. Election Assistance Commission in 2020.
Between 2016 and 2020, the percentage of voters with a disability grew from 55.9% to 61.8%. But for voters with no disability it was 62.2% to 67.5% — still a 5.7% difference. Learn more about this research on the EAC website.
The team at the Center for Civic Design wondered how hard it was to find information about independent and private voting across the country. Read their findings on Medium.com.
