Disability Rights Oregon offering accessible
Easy Voting Guide for voters with disabilities
Disability Rights Oregon (DRO) has made its Easy Voting Guide available online that people with disabilities may access for information about statewide candidates and ballot measures. It may be downloaded on DRO’s website or by requesting copies at 888-339-VOTE (8683).
The Easy Voting Guide is published by DRO and is designed to be accessible to people with disabilities. The guide does not contain any endorsements.
Candidates for all included offices were invited to submit their statements and priorities. Those who responded did not have their replies edited or changed. The candidates’ photos and lists are in random alphabetical order as provided by the Oregon Secretary of State.
DRO summarized costs and arguments for and against ballot measures. The estimates of financial impact, arguments in favor, and arguments in opposition were provided by the State of Oregon Voters’ Pamphlet.
DRO is also providing information on its website to guide voters to successfully vote and make their voice heard. There is even a three-minute video that explains methods for people with disabilities to vote and a link that provides a list of official ballot dropsites if there is not enough time for it to be received by mail.
Anyone experiencing problems in voting may contact the Disability Rights Oregon Voting Hotline at 888-339-VOTE (8683).
