#17 Disabled Denied Democracy

November 26, 2019

Disabled people face significantly unequal opportunity when it comes to running for elected office and voting.  Disadvantage in the form of information, process, and access only allow the disabled voter and candidate to experience a form of neutered democracy.  Building a pluralistic society demands that we develop methods to allow all people to have a say in their national future.  In this episode we'll explore the problem in more details and present solutions for how we might structure our electoral process to provide equal opportunity for disabled participants.
