Rides to the Polls

Reliable transportation is one of the many major roadblocks to Georgian’s with disabilities fulfilling their civil right to cast their ballot,  have their vote count and their voice heard. REV UP Georgia is partnering with state-wide organizations in an attempt to overcome this barrier. Click this link to connect to resources that will help you schedule your ride to the polls.  

Importance of the Disability Vote

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.

"I'm not gonna pass nobody my torch,

but I will light yours for you..." Gaylon Tootle
