ARISE’s mission is to work with people of all abilities to create a fair and just community in which everyone can fully participate. That includes the right to cast an independent ballot in elections.

Keep an eye out for our #ARISEandVOTE hashtag on social media to learn more about your right to vote as a person with a disability.

Also, if you have any questions about voting in the upcoming elections, how to register, how to locate your polling place and how to use the accessible voting machines: contact Phil Prehn, Systems Change Advocate at or 315-671-4658
