What is National Disability Voter Registration Week (NDVRW)? It is a campaign to increase the political power of people with disabilities by sharing resources and getting folks registered to vote. In the last election, an estimated 38 million people with disabilities were eligible to vote. This is one of the largest and most diverse voting blocks in the United States. During NDVRW, national, state, and local organizations take part, in order to continue to raise the disability voice and increase civic participation of people with disabilities across the country! Every year, the American Association of People with Disabilities’ REV UP Campaign coordinates NDVRW. Typically celebrated in July, this year, NDVRW was September 13-20, 2021. Activities include voter registration drives, social media campaigns, letter writing projects, townhall meetings, and the Disability Vote Summit.
