Voting Access

The 2020 Election season is in full swing in Maine and your vote counts!

In partnership with our clients and allies, DRM works to remove barriers to voting and to educate and train people on voting rights.

Maine's Protection and Advocacy for Voter Access (PAVA) project:

  • enforces the right to equal opportunities for people with disabilities in gaining access to polling places, registering to vote, and casting a ballot;
  • conducts training and education activities on voting rights for people with disabilities and their allies;
  • engages in systemic work to promote the involvement of people with disabilities in decisions that impact them.
