Event Encourages Disabled Citizens to Vote
Posted on: 10/03/2012
By  Mike Cullums

Several organizations including Wasco and the Washington County Board of Elections took part in a voter education and registration event at the Wasco Workshop yesterday.
Adults with various disabilities work there, and yesterday’s event was designed to help those citizens make their voices heard on Election Day.
There was instruction for the blind and other types of disabilities, and reassurance from local elections officials that they and poll workers stand ready to assist disabled voters.
About 75 people took part. They met candidates for commissioner and common pleas judge, as well as county Democratic chair Molly Varner and Republican chair Leslie Haas.
It's estimated that more than ten thousand county residents have disabilities of various types.
