A record number of voters overcame many different barriers to cast their ballot in the 2020 elections. New data on the disability vote in 2020 provides some insight into how people with disabilities voted and what barriers continue to create a gap in voter turnout between people with and without disabilities.
Dr. Lisa Schur and Dr. Doug Kruse, researchers at Rutgers University, share key insights on the experience of voters with disabilities in the 2020 elections. Dr. Schur and Dr. Kruse’s research on the disability vote in 2020 was commissioned and supported by the Election Assistance Commission. Read more about Dr. Kruse and Dr. Schur’s research through the Election Assistance Commission.
This event is hosted by AAPD’s REV UP Campaign, which launched in 2016, and is composed of state and national coalitions that work to advance the Disability Vote. REV UP stands for Register! Educate! Vote! Use your Power! REV UP’s mission is to foster civic engagement and protect the voting rights of Americans with disabilities.
