Election Engagement Hub
Welcome to AAPD’s Election Engagement Hub!
In recent years, voter turnout has surged among citizens with disabilities, with a 5.9% point increase in 2020 in comparison to the 2016 elections. As accessible forms of voting are stripped back, the disability community is persisting and more engaged than ever before.
Through our REV UP Campaign and advocacy work, AAPD provides information and tools for disabled voters to engage as meaningfully as possible in their state, local, and federal elections.

Disability Presidential Candidate Survey
Voters with disabilities deserve to make informed decisions on the issues that matter to them, and through the Disability Presidential Candidate Survey, AAPD will gather candidates’ positions and priorities on issues important to the disability community. The candidate questionnaire is non-partisan, and was sent today to Republican, Democrat, and third-party candidates. Unedited candidate responses will be made public as they are received and shared with AAPD’s network and the broader disability community.
With this candidate survey, AAPD hopes to increase the visibility and importance of disability issues within candidate platforms.
