NDRN supports the right of people with disabilities to have access to polls and to cast private and independent ballots. Through the Protection and Advocacy for Voting Access (PAVA) the Network ensures election access to individuals with disabilities. Learn more about PAVA.
*Note: the Native American and Northern Mariana Islands P&As do not receive PAVA funding.
The National Technical Assistance Center (NTAC) for Voting and Cognitive Access and Project Vote help people with disabilities, election officials, and the P&As make voting accessible for all citizens and are a partner with NDRN on the HAVA training and technical assistance grant. Project Vote was started by Self Advocates Becoming Empowered (SABE), the self-advocacy organization of the United States. Founded in 1990, SABE has been working hard for the full inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in the community throughout the 50 states and the world for 21 years and is a non-profit advocacy organization run by a board of self-advocates representing 9 regions of the country.
