Holding a Voter Registration Event on Tuesday, September 25 from 10.30am to 1.30pm

The event will be based at Refuge Coffee, 4170 Ponce de Leon Ave., Clarkston GA 30021

disABILITY LINK staff, allies and volunteers will be helping people to register to vote, providing information and options about when and where to vote, and requesting a pledge to vote

People with disabilities typically register and vote at a rate lower than people without disabilities;

People who are recent citizens are less likely to register and vote as 3rd and 4th generation citizens;

  • In 2012, first- and second-generation eligible voters were less likely than third-and-higher-generation eligible voters to register or vote (US Census Bureau)

We know..."Our Vote is Our Voice" - we will support our peers, neighbors, friends, family and all citizens to register to vote and use our vote - volunteers will be provided training, please contact host for more information.
