Youth Vote

Young people and people with disabilities are underrepresented at the polls – that means that young people with disabilities have got to get out the vote! This video was made possible by funding support from the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living ACL (Award #1603WAVOTP). These contents are solely the responsibility of Disability Rights Washington, the parent organization of Rooted in Rights, and do not necessarily represent the official views of ACL.
