Adults with disabilities have the same right to vote as adults without disabilities. Under current state law, voters in Rhode Island need a photo ID to vote at the polling place.
We work to promote full participation for individuals with disabilities in the electoral process, including registering to vote and casting a ballot. We also operate a Voting Rights Hotline on Election Days while the polls are open.
We help individuals with disabilities who:
- Have questions about their voting rights
- Need help registering to vote
- Face barriers to getting a photo ID
- Need information about registering to vote and voting when they are in a facility
- Have trouble accessing their polling place
- Have trouble accessing the accessible voting equipment
- Are denied the right to vote due to their disability
- Are denied the right to vote privately
- Are denied the right to vote independently
- Wish to ask for help to make a state complaint about a violation of their voting rights
