Elections

Voting is a fundamental right for all adult American citizens.  By Federal law, having a disability such as a brain injury does not alter this right in any election.  This includes national, state and local elections.  All election polling locations must be accessible or provide an alternate means for a brain injury survivor to vote.  Moreover, having a brain injury does not stop a survivor from registering to vote if he or she was not registered pre-injury.  For more information, follow this link to the US Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division.

Now go out and vote!
