Your vote is your voice!

The policies that people with developmental disabilities want to see happen need the support of our elected officials – that’s one reason that voting is so important. Decisions get made by those with a seat at the table – we want to make sure that table is filled with people who will work to make policy that works towards a more supportive and inclusive society!
