RevUp the Vote!

National Voter Registration Day is September 26th, 2017!

‘RevUP’ is a campaign that aims to increase the political power of the disability community while also engaging candidates and the media on disability issues.

Full political participation for Americans with disabilities is a top priority for RevUp and Liberty Resources wants to do our job to help.

On September 26th we will have on-site voter registration

Until then, please encourage our consumers, co-workers, friends, and family to continue to use the power of their votes through local elections- and most importantly encourage anyone who is not registered to vote to get registered! If you or anyone you know has moved please be sure voter information is updated.
I recommend signing up for Turbo Vote if you are able to- it’s an organization that keeps track of the elections happening in your community.
https://turbovote.org

Great Voting Resources listed below:
Register to vote: https://register2.rockthevote.com/registrants/new
RevUp website: http://www.aapd.com/our-focus/voting/
Sign Vote: http://signvote.org/
SignVote is about bringing people and ideas together, to share issues, and to create a space where members of the deaf and hard of hearing community learn why we should register to vote and the importance of your choice to vote.
