Execute Your Right to Vote

 

 

With the general election coming up in all 50 US States, coming up this  November 5; make sure you vote.  All polling places and districts are wheelchair accessible. I work the poles.  The election booths are all computerized and wheelchair/mobility accessible.

If you don’t have your own vehicle and your district is too far away for you to get to, don't worry. If you have Medicaid, they have to take you free of charge to vote.  Medical transportation must provide you with this service, when you are on Medicaid.

The general election this year is for Governor and the US Senate, both federal and in your state . Even if you think that they are all liars, do this for yourself and your community.   This way, you have say for yourself and your community.

Your election board will also send you a ballet where you live. You can vote by mail, if you call them a month in advance.  There is no reason for you not to advocate for yourself and vote.  This will give you more say for accessible housing and ADA employment in your state as well as building more handicapped accessible places around you.

In the picture here, I posed with the adults who take part in Ladacin Network. We met at the opening day of the new board walk in Belmar NJ. Governor Christie and the candidates who were running came for the ribbon cutting ceremony. This was a big event because the people and the contractors of Belmar NJ, had rebuilt it after it was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. Ladacin Network came to be seen and heard as well, as they are going to decide who they are going to endorse in the November election. This network consists of adults with mobility issues combined with DMD, doing for themselves.

There is power in advocating for yourself and your community.  When you execute your right to vote, you achieve this.  Although the US is holding the election in November, this idea rings true in other countries as well. Get out and vote. All of you are awesome.

    I have just executed mine! Vote #2 my friend. Yes, indeed anywhere you are, voting is a necessary civil responsibility that all should participate in. It's good to hear that technology has made this obligation easier for all.

      Thank you Danny. There are still a lot of low income and challenged people who don't that medicaid has to supply you with a way to get there and back to vote, if you don't own a vehicle in the US.
