Are you planning to vote?
Rooted in Rights created a video to encourage people with disabilities to vote. The people in this video explain to us why voting is important. In this video, Noah says to vote so you are able to "cast your opinion on how society runs."
Should people with disabilities vote? Yes! People with disabilities can vote. It is a way for your voice to be heard, to engage in your community, and possibly even have an affect nationally.
There are many reasons why each person votes but why do YOU vote? Voting can make a change like who we decide to be leaders of our government, how law should be interpreted, health care needs, and much more.
If you do not know how to vote, Rooted in Rights gives 3 steps.
