Disability Voting Rights Week, formally known as National Disability Voter Registration Week, is September 12 - 16, 2022. 

Disability Voting Rights Week is coordinated by the REV UP Campaign. REV UP stands for "Register, Educate, Vote, Use your Power."

The mission of REV UP is to "foster civic engagement and protect the voting rights of Americans with disabilities." REV UP is a group of "grassroots coalitions and partner organizations that work to advance the Disability Vote."

REV UP works to "increase the political power of people with disabilities" by helping people with disabilities register to vote and getting candidates and communities educated and involved with issues that impact people with disabilities.

In 2020, an estimated 38 million people with disabilities were eligible to vote. This year, the REV UP Campaign is "inviting national, state, and local organizations and advocates to participate in this national initiative in order to continue to raise the disability voice and civic participation across the country in 2022 and beyond."
