About the NCIL Voting Rights Subcommittee

The mission of the NCIL Voting Rights Subcommittee is to increase the participation of people with disabilities in the electoral process in order to maximize our ability to affect federal, state, and local political priorities. Full political participation for Americans with disabilities is a top priority, and to effectively advocate, the NCIL Voting Rights Subcommittee works with state and national coalitions on effective, non-partisan campaigns. Our work focuses on five strategic priorities throughout civic engagement:

  1. Increasing voter registration of people with disabilities
  2. Increasing voter turnout of people with disabilities
  3. Making the entire voting process accessible for voters with disabilities
  4. Advocating for election reform
  5. Encouraging and educating people with disabilities to run for elected office
