Disability Rights DC (DRDC)’s voting advocacy focuses on making sure that voting is accessible to all DC residents with disabilities and that voters with disabilities can vote independently and privately. To achieve full and equal access to voting, DRDC is working to ensure that all vote centers in the District are fully accessible to people with a range of disabilities by surveying polling places and voting equipment, reporting inaccessible polling places to the DC Board of Elections (BOE), pursuing legal advocacy, and conducting outreach and education regarding voting rights and issues that impact access to voting for DC residents with disabilities.  DRDC does its voting work under our Protection and Advocacy for Voter Access (PAVA) grant.   

DRDC accepts cases of residents of the District of Columbia who have disabilities and complaints that fall within our PAVA grant priorities. Requests for assistance are assessed on a case-by-case basis under our priorities and based on resources.
