National Disability Voter Registration Week (NDVRW) is recognized each year to make a concerted effort to get people with disabilities registered to vote, educated about this year’s election, and prepared to cast a ballot in November. This year, NDVRW is July 16 -20, 2018. The Delaware County District Library (DCDL) and the Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities (DCBDD)are teaming up in the national campaign also known as REV UP. The REV UP campaign launched by the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) in 2016, is a nonpartisan initiative that coordinates with national, state, and local disability organizations to increase the political power of the disability community while also engaging candidates and the media on disability issues. The Campaign focuses on voter registration, education, access, and engagement. REV UP stands for Register! Educate! Vote! Use your Power!
