Real-time Help on Election Day: Use The Arc’s Voter Support Service - In 2012, one in five voters with disabilities experienced a barrier at the polls. To help resolve problems in real-time, The Arc is launching our new Voter Support Service at https://vote.thearc.org/. Working with Election Protection’s national network of support, we are aiming to make it easier for people to report problems and get help as quickly as possible. This site is a simple, mobile-friendly way for people with disabilities to ensure that their vote counts. We need your help! Spread the word in your community. This is a critical election, every vote counts! Check out the website https://vote.thearc.org/—and share it with your network! This site can be saved to your home screen or bookmarked on your mobile device. For instructions to do this go to: http://www.thearc.org/what-we-do/resources/toolkits/vote.
