    Disabled and chronically ill people are frequently underrepresented when it comes to voting; for our views to be heard, it is essential that we vote. Some states now have provisions to make it easier for people to vote including measures like registering to vote online, getting a permanent write-in ballot at home, etc. During this recent presidential election, the Republican and Democratic parties have different views on health care and health insurance, issues which impact many peoples' lives on this board, and I would encourage people to learn about them.

    Below is info stat-by-state for voting -- note deadlines and procedures vary by each state:

    I use FactCheck as one of my resources to get past the headlines and understand issues as it is mostly non-partisan:

    Great post. I will be voting by mail-in ballot as I've done for many years. I'm so grateful for having that option as often I would not be able to make it down to the voting booth.
