All this focus on the importance of voting made me re-read Bridget Ford's article in the 2005 issue of the Disabilities Awareness Newsletter (Connect-Ability's old title). She named it "The Forgotten Bloc" calling attention to the fact that "individuals with disabilities who have an enormous stake in politics" are "less likely to register and vote." Lack of accessibility is just one of the problems she cited. I challenge all of you students out there to paste the following link to your web browser and ask yourself some questions about the voting places in your community. Let us know what you find.
