Presidential Elections- 2020

Why the Presidential Elections Matter

The President of the United States has many powerful responsibilities such as deciding how the laws of our country are to be enforced and choosing officials to help run the Executive Branch. Voting is an important way to voice support or dissent to the issues you care about ie healthcare, criminal justice, or minimum wage.  Your vote will helps ensure we have a president that you think can best enact the changes you want to see.

Important Election Dates

The elections for the next president of the United States will be held on November 3, 2020. Click here for the 2020 presidential primary schedule.

AAPD/NCIL Presidential Candidate Questionnaire

In 2020, approximately 23% of the American electorate — over 35 million individuals — will be people with disabilities. As people with disabilities, we want to live independent lives and contribute our talent and energy to the future success of our great nation. There are over 60 million Americans with disabilities who make remarkable and valuable contributions to our communities.

In an effort to inform the disability community of the presidential candidate’s disability policy positions, initiatives, and priorities, the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the National Council on Independent Living (NCIL), and the REV UP Campaign have developed a presidential candidate questionnaire. Click here to download a copy of the questionnaire (plain text version). So far, the following candidates have completed the questionnaire: Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Marianne Williamson. Please see candidate responses below
