Rock The Vote

Autism and Voting

This year has been a roller coaster.  In a country as divided as the United States, we have one point of common ground for sure.  2020 has been over the top.

We have a presidential election this year to add to the mix and everyone has a strong opinion on the candidates.

It feels hard to be heard or even believe that your voice makes a difference.  

Decisions Are Made By Those Who Show Up

There are so many reasons people don’t vote.  

They don’t like the candidates

Just don’t believe that their vote makes any difference

Half Of Americans Don’t Vote.  What Are They Thinking?


 The election, presidency, congress and so many other important votes are chosen by a few.


Why Vote?

 Voting is our right and how we make our voice heard in elections. 
Parents and guardians can assist and explain the election and voting process to include family members with autism.  

Take some time and use the informational links provided to have a conversation.  Discuss which issues they feel strongly about and how that affects their vote.
Adults with autism have voting rights and deserve to be heard.

Voting Requirements

  • 18 years old or older
  • A United States citizen
