National Disability Voter Registration Week
July 16-20, 2018 | 4pm-6pm | Delaware, OH
The Delaware County District Library (DCDL) and Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities (DCBDD) are proud to announce their participation in a national, nonpartisan effort to increase the political participation of people with disabilities. This effort, known as the REV UP Campaign, has designated July 16-20, 2018 as National Disability Voter Registration Week in advance of the November elections. DCDL will host daily open registration during National Disability Voter Registration Week from 4 – 6 p.m. A station will be set up near the front of each location where people of all abilities can sign up to vote and engage with real voting machines on loan from the Delaware County Board of Elections. The DCDL is located at 84 E. Winter St. Delaware, OH 43015.
Ohio Candidate Forum on Disability Issues
July 26, 2018 | 12:30pm-4:30pm | Columbus, OH
The Ohio Candidate Forum on Disability Issues will provide a format for the candidates for Ohio Governor and U.S. Senate to inform the disability community about their positions on disability-related issues/policy. Rarely are these platform issues a priority, or even considered, by public officials, yet they affect approximately 2 million Ohioans with disabilities, at least 13% of our state’s population. The forum will be held at the Ohio State University Fawcett Event Center (2400 Olentangy River Rd., Columbus, OH 43210) and moderated by Mr. Alan Johnson, (Retired) Columbus Dispatch Statehouse Reporter. John D. Kemp, Esq., Life-long advocate and co-author of ADA, will deliver a keynote address. For more information, contact the Center for Disability Empowerment at 614-575-8055.
