As part of a national campaign to urge people with all disabilities to speak out for themselves through the power of the vote, the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and other advocacy organizations have launched its REV UPcampaign. A major part of this effort is National Disability Voter Registration Week, July 17–21, 2017, established in 2015, as part of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). (The anniversary of ADA is July 26.) The aim is to “…advocate for policies that allow people with disabilities to fully participate in the political process, including ensuring the accessibility of poling locations and through the promoting the availability of accessible voting technology.”
