In 2002 Congress passed the Help America Vote Act or HAVA, which authorized a new protection and advocacy program to protect the voting rights of people with disabilities. In Colorado we call our program VOTE!
Disability Law Colorado believes that people with disabilities not only have the right to vote, but also the obligation to make their voices heard. Click here to view our Voting Rights Fact Sheet.
Our Voting Vision
It is our goal to encourage Coloradans with disabilities to vote in every election and to develop a life-long habit of voting and civic engagement.
Vote as if your life depends on it, because it does."
