This new initiative encourages people with disabilities, their families, friends, and advocates to be involved in the election process, and support issues that are important to them.
We are building membership of thousands of people who care about issues that are critical to people with disabilities and the communities in which they live. To join the efforts and receive updates and information click here or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the membership list.

The Voter Education project is a coalition project, funded by the coalition and the information provided is intended for public use.
In 2008 a group of cross-disability related nonprofit organizations in Northeast Indiana joined forces to conduct a political forum with the Third District congressional candidates. That effort spawned the Northeast Indiana Disability Advocacy Coalition, and is comprised of organizations who share and volunteer in efforts to host and sponsor various events within the disability community. The Disability Advocacy Coalition Voter Education Project is one of the initiatives developed by NEIDAC to increase voter education, voter registration, and support a get out the vote campaign in an effort to see more Hoosiers with disabilities at the polls.
As a non-partisan effort, Disability Advocacy Coalition Voter Education Project strives to increase the voting power of the disability community and identify key issues that are pertinent in the 2012 elections so that individuals may make informed decisions when choosing elected officials.
While this project is primarily focused on serving Indiana’s 3rd Congressional District, the resources and links provide valuable information for anyone who is interested in increasing voter participation within their community.
