Welcome to the DVC
The Disability Voting Coalition of Pennsylvania (DVC) is a non-partisan coalition working to promote voter registration, voting and civic engagement by people with disabilities, our families and allies. We focus on voting rights, access to voting and voter education. The Disability Voting Coalition of PA is a growing, cross-disability organization of people committed to improving the voting experiences of people with disabilities.
Voting does more than elect politicians. Through the act of voting, people become dynamic players in the political arena where policy decisions are made and both their political and personal power grows. They become active citizens, connected with the community of voters.
According to the US Census, approximately 2 million voting age Pennsylvanian’s have disabilities – more than 20% of potential voters. We could represent a powerful voting bloc but we face obstacles when it comes time to vote.
Together we are building an effective coalition across the Commonwealth that addresses voting issues encountered by people from all disability groups!
The mission of the Disability Voting Coalition of Pennsylvania is to increase the power of Pennsylvanians with disabilities by establishing the disability community as strong and mobilized voter bloc.
