Voting and Disabilities

People who are disabled often use it as an excuse not to vote. To paraphrase a certain speech, "It doesn't have to be that way!".

If your vision or mobility make voting at the regular polling place difficult, get an Absentee Ballot! Call or write your state Registar of Voters' office, and have them mail you an Absentee Ballot. Fill it out, and mail it in *before* the election, to be sure it will be counted (many states have deadlines for receiving absentee ballots.)

Save yourself the hassle and dealing with crowds, have more time to look over the ballot and make your choice, and avoid the dealing with your doubts on the touch screen voting machines. Arrange for your absentee ballot today!

You can also request "permanent absentee" status, so that you won't have to remember to request the absentee ballot each time.

You can also drop off your absentee ballot at any polling place in the county on election day if you wish, or forgot to mail it earlier.

Another easy way to register...
...is one a companion pointed out to me...craigslist. There's a section there ("register to vote" bracketed by smilies) where all you need is Acrobat and a printer after your done, as it generate a mailer ready-made for posting. Just fill it out, print stamp and send. I just finished mine!
