Kick Off for National Disability Voter Registration Week @ Disability Rights Texas Office

From Disability Rights Texas:

This press conference and public event on July 16 at 10:00 a.m. at the DRTx Austin offices is our official kickoff to National Disability Voters Registration Week (July 16-19). It’s a time when the country focuses on the importance of people with disabilities registering to vote so they can participate in important upcoming federal, state, and local elections.

Now more than any other time in memory:
* Elected leaders and political candidates are recognizing more than 4 MILLION Texans with disabilities—from birth to advanced age—as a powerful, important constituency.
* Issues important to people with disabilities must be part of the platform for any candidate running for public office.
Texans with disabilities CAN have an impact on the outcome of state and local elections. But to vote, you MUST register!

We’ll start at 10:00 am with a line-up of special guest speakers, followed at 10:45 am by free Volunteer Deputy Registrar Training for those who want to help out at the polls. Lunch will be served when the training concludes at 12 noon.
