We have updated our #AutisticsVote Federal Election Toolkit for the 2021 election! Read and download the guide here: https://bit.ly/AutisticsVote
It contains plain language information on the electoral system, how to vote, and how to advocate on autistic and disability justice issues during the election.
We've included an email template and questions you can ask candidates.
You can read and download individual sections or the full guide in PDF or Microsoft Word format.
We know that our community is diverse and that autistic people often have trouble voting because of many reasons. We've tried to make this guide as plain language as possible and include resource links for marginalized groups. Alt-text is included for all images.
Political parties in Canada are committing to create a National Autism Strategy.
Yet, some are listening to the ABA lobby rather than actual autistics. Our vote is one way to be heard.
For the 2021 election, let's get the autistic vote out!
The federal election is happening on Monday, September 20th. The deadline to apply for voting by mail is Tuesday, September 14th at 6 pm.
