as a voter, I would disagree. I’ve seen this backfire repeatedly. This is the one issue I have with these trainings. - Just a general comment not a question.

(in regards to “over contacting”

Disabled candidates represent an overlooked constituency- and often live in areas that are often ignored by campaigns. How should a field director/candidate attend to that, given the fact that the expectation that a disabled candidate reach out to the disability community will be higher than a candidate who doesn't have a disability?

rules in PA for absentee ballots are very strict. They don’t always make allowances for chronically ill or “invisible disabilities” to vote absentee

If you are voting, your contact information is being captured by your county auditor and your secretary of state. Both entities will sell voter rolls for a very small cost.

Sarah this is where NCIL’s volunteer coordinator doc makes a difference. There’s been quite a few campaigns they say are open to disabled people but do NOT allow disabled people to play to their strengths in volunteer opportunities.

That paradigm needs to shift too. Volunteer coordinators need to listen and be open to this type of engagement
