Where Do We Go From Here?
By: Deborah Delgado, Disability Rights Pennsylvania
Our country experienced a very unusual Election cycle in 2016. The unique beauty of living in a democracy is our right to vote and sometimes our favored candidate wins and sometimes the opponent wins. Each one of us is entitled to choose who we vote for and entitled to do it independently and privately! From discussions we have had on the DVC Advisory Committee, we know that some voters with disabilities had no problems at all at their polling places and other people experienced some barriers to casting a private and independent vote. If you had a problem voting on Election Day, I still encourage you to contact me so that we can keep track of these issues and so that we can ultimately work to remove these barriers.
If you have questions, comments or concerns about voting rights, we definitely want to hear from you.
