Georgia PSA: Independent Person -- Free Choice


Amid Georgia's historic election that saw the first transfer of presidential power through the ballot box, the nation's civil society and election administration made strides to ensure the political and electoral process was accessible and inclusive for all citizens, including those with disabilities.

To this end, IFES supported the Coalition for Independent Living's (CIL) voter motivation and education campaign. This umbrella group of over 25 disabled persons' organizations produced a public service announcement targeting voters with disabilities, which explains the importance of participation and provides an overview of the services available for those requiring additional assistance ahead of and on Election Day.
