Disability Rights Oregon works to ensure full participation in the electoral process including registering to vote and casting a ballot. In partnership with the Secretary of State, we produce a nonpartisan Easy Voting Guide, and do year-round training, outreach and advocacy on behalf of voters and prospective voters with disabilities.
DRO receives funding from Protection & Advocacy for Voting Access (PAVA) (42 U.S.C. § 15461-62, P.L. 107-252). PAVA is administered by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Administration on Developmental Disabilities.
