Create a Personalized Plan to Vote
The Wisconsin Disability Vote Coalition created a step by step guide to help you make a plan to vote in the November 3rd Presidential Election. From voter registration to instructions for absentee or in-person voting, these steps will help you to ensure your vote is counted! View the guide here.
Do you plan to vote in person at your polling place November 3? Jenny Neugart from the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities and the Wisconsin Disability Vote Coalition shares what you’ll need to vote in-person as well as tips for staying safe.
Wisconsin requires a Photo ID to vote. If you don’t have a driver’s license or other valid Photo ID, you can get a Wisconsin State ID card for free. Have a question about photo ID and voting? Contact the Dane County/ Wisconsin Voter ID Coalition at 608-285-2141.
The Disability Vote Coalition has an updated resource with Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) that they are hearing from people with disabilities throughout the state. Check out their FAQ to learn more about absentee voting, voter registration, and voting in-person in the 2020 elections.
The Disability Rights Wisconsin Voter Hotline can help you check your voter registration status and answer your voting questions. Call DRW at 844-DIS-VOTE / 844-347-8683 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Voted Already? Take the Voter Experience Survey!
Have you already voted in the 2020 Presidential Election? Are you a person who lives with a disability? If you said yes to both of those questions, we need your feedback. Disability Rights Wisconsin is partnering with Self Advocates Becoming Empowered (SABE) on the SABE GoVoter survey. The survey will collect information about the voting experiences of voters with disabilities in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Many voters with disabilities have had problems voting. Sharing your experience will help us find out if the voting barriers still exist or if they have improved. We can share what we learn with local, state and federal election leaders to protect our right to vote!
