Justin and Cindy from the Minnesota Disability Law Center joined Jeff Thompson in the Blind Abilities studio for a discussion on voting rights for youth with disabilities.
We also get to talk to Nate and Nikki, 2 young adults, about their experiences voting accessibly using the Auto-Mark device and completing an absentee ballot.
How do you find the information on where to vote and how to get your absentee ballot?
You can go to the Minnesota Secretary of State Elections and Voting website and get all the information about registering online, election dates, voting by mail and where to cast your ballot.
