The gap in voter turnout among people with disabilities, compared to other voters, highlights significant barriers to voting. The Philadelphia Autism Project and City Commissioner Al Schmidt, who oversees the voting process in Philadelphia, are working together on specific resources and awareness efforts. Commissioner Schmidt will share efforts his office has undertaken to address these barriers and citizens’ rights to accessibility accommodations. The Philadelphia Autism Project will provide resources and information to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to have their voice heard. One of the best ways to prepare for voting is to practice and get comfortable with the machines. As the city modernizes the election process, new voting booths will be available for you to practice!
