There are 7.8 million registered voters in Georgia! Approximately 650,000 people with disabilities in Georgia are of voting age—family and loved ones can double or triple their impact, with nearly 20% of voters having a “stake” in disability issues.
The good news— 5% more of eligible voters with disabilities voted in 2020 than in 2016.
The not-so-good news—people with disabilities were 5% less likely to vote than those without disabilities.
Vote for candidates who will work on your issues and concerns! No candidate will be perfect.
Every candidate will have to work with others to accomplish policy changes.
