Voting has always been challenging for people living with disabilities, and this year, the pandemic has created even more obstacles for the more than 38 million eligible voters who have disabilities (16 percent of the electorate).
Voters with disabilities deserve equal opportunity to vote and equal access to polling places. To learn more about voting resources for people with disabilities, visit the NYC Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities website here.
Amplifier and Times Square Arts are proud to announce that Vote Your Future, an urgent new citywide campaign that directs voters to important voting and civic resources in the lead up to Election Day, November 3.
Now on view in Times Square and throughout New York, the Vote Your Future artworks feature QR codes for vote.org, where they can look up polling locations, find resources to request absentee ballots and vote by mail, volunteer to be a poll worker, fill out a 2020 census questionnaire, and access additional information about getting involved in the electoral process. For parties interested in bringing the campaign to their own neighborhood, Vote Your Future artworks can be downloaded for free at www.amplifier.org.
Vote Your Future features nine uplifting artworks commissioned by Amplifier by the following artists: Celeste Beyers, Gillian Dreher, Brooke Fischer, Shannon Finnegan, Kayla Jones, Laci Jordan, Never Made, Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya, and Carolyn Suzuki. This series of engaging, inclusive, and critical messages to the public will feature text in English, Spanish, and Mandarin.
