The Minnesota Disability Law Center (MDLC) of Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid has produced a 15-minute video about voting rights for people with disabilities in Minnesota. The video features members of the disability community, MMLA volunteers and staff, disability rights advocates, and Minnesota Secretary of State Steven Simon. Viewers will learn about barriers to voting for people with disabilities, what changed with 2002’s Help America Vote Act, and the responsibilities of state and federal officials to provide accessibility. MDLC Attorney Justin Page explains what to do if something goes wrong during the voting process, and the video concludes with comments on the importance of voting if you are a disabled Minnesotan.
