National Disability Rights Network

National Disability Rights Network (NDRN) is the nonprofit membership organization for several federally mandated programs that improve the lives of individuals with disabilities and guard against abuse.

WHY WE INVESTED

This grant would support the National Disability Rights Network’s (NDRN) work around accessibility for voters with disabilities. Currently, the voter participation gap for individuals with disabilities is around 3 million voters, largely due to inaccessible registration systems, polling places, and voting machines. This grant will allow NDRN the capacity to educate election officials, equipment vendors, advocates, and the public on the need for fully accessible elections.
