Return to Election Data Dispatches06-18-13

In the 2012 general election, voters with disabilities cast ballots at lower rates than those without, according to U.S Census data.

Among eligible voters with no disabilities, 62.5 percent cast ballots, compared with 56.8 percent of the estimated 27.5 million disabled eligible voters. More detailed data show that among these voters, those with hearing difficulties cast ballots at the highest rate—63.2 percent—and those with cognitive disabilities did so at the lowest rate: 44.8 percent.
