||The disability vote is the overlooked and forgotten vote. To help my organization
increase the disability vote, I conducted a series of interviews with people from
various disability rights and voting advocacy organizations. The interviews expanded
on four common barriers that exist within the disability community and other minority
communities: discrimination, voter suppression voter apathy, and lack of Information.
They also revealed various approaches and techniques to increase voting among their
respective audiences, including social media relationship building, and candidate
Furthermore, the voting habits and outreach techniques of three minority groups were
studied – the Latinx population, the LGBTQ+ community, and young people. A brief look
at the results of the case studies are discussed in the project. Based on the interviews
and case studies three recommendations were made to the organization on how to contribute
to increasing the disability vote.
